Student C^mncil as it stands today. At 
one time our campus government was 
ia the hands of two seperate bodies: 
the Men's Council and the Women's 

L~ Y^fB^H Council, which were a great deal like 
^ l^^l present dormitory councils. These 
^I^^H two bodies were apparenUy too cum- 
'^^H bersome to work efficiently. In the 
academic year of. 1940-1941 steps were 
taken to study an altn^ate system of 
student government, and in the spring 
^1 of 1941 the first Student Council, as 

It exists today, was elected with Wil- 
liam Stabesky as its president. Some 
uf the students will know Mr. Sta- 
besky as the supervising principal of 

ARTIST SUCCUMBS Shingiehpuse, Pemwylvania.

As you hung your 1957 calendar on 
your wall did you make any resolu- 
tions for this new year? I was told 
that the dishwashers in the kitchen 
resolved not to drop any of our new 

dOTH break tiOk t^mlh^tka - or tht 
cups, either! "■ . 

Speaking of dishwariiers, I under- 
stand several of our students-both 
former and present - have assumed 
t ie lifetime roles of dishwasfhers. Ah, 
raarriage is such a Joy! Dick Jaquish 
and Phyllis Bailey, Gary Cruttenden 
and Connie Erway. Al Mathews, Ralph 
Matters, Lucille Bowers, and Donald 
Bitner will testify to that statement. 
All had holiday weddings. 

Have you noticed Jlean Wildier- 
muth's ring? "Bucl^" pjfice i*^. 
lucky fellow. As Jean said, "I caught 
niy 'Buck' in 'dear* season." 

Santa Claus' slsigh'must have been 
-overloaded with diamonds this Christ- 
rias. It certainly looks that way 
around liere, anyway. 

Allow me to announce the following 
engagemei t Mary Kay Wielch and 
Joseph "Virge" Valentinelli; L«»ora 
Saxton, who is thankful sh^'s left 
banded, and Melvin Woodatd: "Oin-^

Linnea Olson* and Paul Smith are pin- 
ned. Barbara Innes is pinned to Miles 
Wood. And, Joanne Sharplesa has 
Ken Cruse's pin. Congratulations, one 

and all. 

rather than conffratulatioas. Waoda 
Loucks has been very ill and haf not 

returned to campus sino#' her Christ- 
mas vacation. Bill Allford has been 
confined since the holidays* too. He 
has had a severe attack of influenza 
which tnreaUins pneumonia. Why 
don't YOU send Bill a card? His ad- 
dress is: 10 Washington Street; West 
Pittston, Pa. 

Here's word of icautioin to those 
wao enjoy throwing snowballs. 
"Don't stand at the top of a 20 foot 
ladder to release your ammuviition." 
Ed Babcock can give you further in- 
formation on the subject. It seems he 
tiunbled 20 feet and suffered a se- 
vere nead injury. The moral of this 
story is "look before you leap". 

Here's a hearty "welccHne" to ^ic^ 
Earlev. It"s good to see you around 
campus again, Dick.

Getting back into line after hav-

cation Is no Cinch, Tern papers, se- 
n. ester assigiiments and examinations 
make the last leg of Uie semester a 
tough one indeed. The author feela 
fiat the hardest bridge to cross is the 
idea of remembering the good times 
had during the vacation and contrast- 
ing those images with the compari- 
tive drudgery of regimented aca- 

Tlie author packed bag and bag- 
gage into the family wagon and poin-

What a big city it is! .The town of

less find, tickets for the AUNTIE 

Sammy Davis is truly ^Mt. _ Wo nder- 
lul, Mr. Talent Galore and absolutely 
the last word, in the writer's non-

To get dowa( to business, please 
a most amusing Hook cono^ing the 
Naval Public Relations Department, 
by WUliam Brinkley. The job of the 
Public Relations Department is to 
make tiie people of the United States 
believe that the U.S. Navy is the only 
vital fighting branch in the war. The 
very nautical g^tlemen in this 
nover sttcisewlrit leut partially, in 
accomplishing their goal. The st^ry 
contains .nM||Kl8 which range from 
heartwarmiof Iniman latecwt '•thwHiil^ 
subtle humor, to. sidesplitting wise- 

The writer has received many com- 
ments - - not «iU complimentary ~ bdt 
the general tone of which goes some- 
thing like this: "You seem to feel that 
the only good reading is to be found 
among the best sellers," or "suppose 
we students want to read some of 
these books - - where are we going to 
find tiiem In Mansfield?" The only 
answer for these comments would b» 
that the best-sellers, although pes. 
sibly toned with realism and world- 
liness more so than other good novels, 
nevertheless meet the interests of the 
average group - -so why report on 
books with indrs-specific tli|iii««r 

As far as getting the booki is con- 
cerned - - beg. borrow, steal, or buy 
them. U your, aiilhor gels tliiiin, so can

Ipooi^ Joe 

I believe that of all the administra- 
tive departments in our school; the 
■ fi^tall^^, .ni^Mff t If receiver. .....!^.. - mQre...,- 

criticism than any other. I have talna 
tiie time to review this situation and 
have arrived at some condvisioas: 
Everyone has different tastes; yooip" 
can't please all of the people all: of 
the time; almost all people like mom's 
cooking b«st. a rational person, I decided the problems could be solved by 
si.nply devising a new menu with a 
wiae choice of main and side dishes, 
and have Mom take over the cooking 
and serving part of our dining func- 
tion. As anyone can see, this is a 
satisfactory solution to the . problem^ 
at handrbut to a rational person, It 
is nor » practical solution. 

Recruiting the aid of my friend and 
colleague, Bab Benson, (Thiy Tim 
with a Pension), I set out to seek a 
solution that would be satisfactory as 
well as practical. Bob assured me; 
that the answer lay in siniply attrin*^ 
irg the results of the solution already . 
mentioned, without using the solution. 

Following three packs of cigarettes, 
two lengthy volumes on dietetics, and 
a lengthy discussion with a few old 
army cooks, we came up with our.

Each year when election time ar- 
rives, some organizations get good 
leaders and others end up with medi- 
eore 'ikKV lenders. 

To ii^prove this situatiion ' the fol- 
lowing poin^ are suggested. 

1. If yott do not want an office, say 
no. Don't take it. fiiterest and enthus- 
iasm are isQportant to an orgr^nisa- 
tion. ^ 

2. If you are elected, work for the 
organization, no( yourself. Stick to 
the policies ^at are accepted by your 
executive boards. 

3. Don't iigree with something 
whi^ is against your inrlneiides just 
Wsuise that "something's*' backen 
are of higher rank. 

4. Be considerate of your other of- 
ficers and memibers. Don't be lax in 
accepting responsibilities, but by the 
same token, don't assume more ri^ 
sponsibilities than you can handle. 

5. Don't join organizations^ for the 
sake of "joining" or accept a position 
for the sake of "accepting." x 

6. If you fail in an eli^ti^, don't 
quit the organization dr qi^t' working 
for the organization. 

^ 1 Remember^ any organization is 
only as slrong as ttaiarsyESSt mambar.

TEACHim, ALUMNI HALL Do You Want An Exam Week? 


iittf studinF teachini~ToF™a™1nSe° 
week peiMod with a full schedule of 
teaching, or do ]rau prsCcar the pres- 
ent sjrstem? , - 
Those definitely for it: 
Mra. Colegrove, first grade teacher 
— I think it would be a worthwhile 
experience for the student teacher 
to sample an entire day of teach- 
ing in an off-campus schooL She 
would have to Instruct the pupils in 
all phases, not Just in reading or 
singing for example. She would ex- 
perience the phases in which a 
child passes during the course of the 
day, such as becoming tired or 
hungry. , 

It is just as difficult for the pupil 
to become adjusted to one teacher 
after so many Cdurihg college - vaca- 
tion£i), as it is to get used to a var- 
iety. Tills causes a great deal of 
wear and tear on llie teach^ well 
as the student. 

Joyce Bowman, third grade teach- 
er — I do hot like the present system. 
1 would prefer to do all my student 
teaching in one semester instead of 
running back and forth to classes. 
. It would be more beneficial to the 
student as well as the teacher. I think 
it would be a wise idea to plan the 
college curriculum f mr 3 H years 
and teach the entire last semester. 
As for the college subjects^ they 
could be doubled, having more^ gen*., 
eralization and less detail . - , ' 
I wouldn't p;^efer going off campus 
to do iny teikchlhg for the reason 
auki the supervisonr here are avail- 
able, at frequent' times, to give help, 
ful advice^ — *n- > ' . 

Virginia Trautschold, Jtwilor Ele- 
mentary—I prefeir the eystem with 
ft full schedule of teaching. I feel 
that in this way more time can be 
devoted towards teaching, and by 
this a better job can be done. With 
the present system, I feel that there 
is. too much running around and. 
know what to do next. 

those who toid to prefer the iiree- 

ent ^stem. 

..^ — — CbidkMnu^^^iyi^n^u] hjari ^A^I^^^^Kgntn^nt 

<[uite satisfied with the present 
system of student teaching. I think 
it is well prjganfai^d and the children 
here present a challenge to the 

future teacher, fishe leama to un- 
derstand and use discipline (in an 
advantageous manner) she will be 
able to cope with any problem that 
may alriie elsewhere. 

Shirley Sandrock, Secondary sen- 
ior — With my present schedule and 
with the subjects I'm taking, 1 fihd 
the present system satisfactory. My 
college classes fall early in the 
morning. However I think that 
each student teacher should have a 
tour of the . Junior high building, 
more information about noon duty, 
more information concerning the use 
of the library and the infirmary 
set-up, and how much authority the 
Jtudeni-^fthttt liaa Jod how far It 
can go. 

Mrs. Reese, junior high super- 
visor — In one way I feel that a 
student teacher learns gradually and 
will gain more in a longer length of 
time. However, in another way, a 
full sdiedule of teaching would 
give the student teacher an oppor- 
tunity to meet the new faces that 
come into a classroom during the 
day. I feel that the situation would 
depend upon the type of individual. 

..Person who has .taught for a full ■ 
nine week period: . 

Mary Qmis, senior Home Econom- 
ics-^I have bieen teaching at North, 
.east Bradford for the first nine 
weeks. I like going out teaching be.^' 
cause it gives one an opportunity to 
meet new people, adjust to new sit- 
uations, and assume responsjiblity of 
an actual teaching schedule. I taught 
all day and participated in all 
school activities. Each teacher has 
his own home room and is., often 
asked to advise various organize, 
tions or cluiis. 

■ mB^ TSmODOBA QiUmPO, sopfi- 
omore student. Home Economics. — 
I would like to have an exainlQjition 

week at M.S.T.C. When I hi^ve that 
last set of teste, I find that my otiier 

"-iofr t he" ' '""'day B i '°'H^"'- 'have" 
tests, are neglected. If I didn't have 
any other assignments on a test day 
it would, be a great hcdp. 

I>ALB SltBWART, fresniaa stu- 
dent, Elementary, -r .I'm for it. It 
will give us more l^e 'to study for 
tests without interfef>«nce from other 

structor, Elementary and Secondary. 
— In both of the schools I attend- 
ed there was an examination week 
svstem. There were no lectures dur» 
ing this week, xhd hs studehte^ . at- 
tended only those classes ih ' which 
they had tests. On some days there 
wer" no tests, but there was the pos- 
sibility of having two or three tests 
on one day. If your tests were finish- 
ed early in the week you were free, 
but some students had to stay all 

week, miere are some disadvanftaces, 
but I think thi^t ISm atttdenta would 

like the idea. 

PAUL. sovuTH. . sophomore itiidenl;

more time to study for a testr-and 
you avoid cramming the night before

student. Music , Department. — I'm not 
in favor of it. I feel ^at it would 
be more confusin^lr and difficult to 

try and study for a week of combin- 
ed tests. This would be, more or less,* 
cramming. I like to take my studies 
slow so I can absorb what. I'm study. . 

Kenneth CRUSE, junior class- 
man Secondary. — Yes, I think it 
would be a good thing. But, these 
tests should be broad in scope and 
cover all |he important things

This way, "We're half-student, and 

James Wijfson,, Sacondaiy |seinicp>— 
J ^lieve that we should do all our 
'student teaching in one semester or 
at one.«thQe for it will be more 
nearly like a true teaching situation. 
In actual teaching you are there 
from the opening bell until the clos- 
ing bell. You wouldn't have college 
classes and tests to jvorry about. , 

Gafy Kreis|er„ sophomore— I think 
it would be better to change the syi- 
tem and do all the student teaching 
at one time. The way it is now, 
many student teachers have to leave 
before their classes are over to be 
at the junior high on time. I think, 
it would be haard to adjust to being 
a teacher and giving a tat one hoiir, 
and then being a student and taking 
a test Jihe next hour.

Are you in favor of teafipg-down

Herbert G. Petersohi, Alumnus, 
Former President of Alumni Associ- 
ation—I t|iink that Alumni Hall is 
probably an antique building. While 
it is a landmark and symbol of the 
past, we have to take down some

New Semester Offers 
$64,000 Challenge 

. ^ Leonard Yaudea 
Gonburrent with this issue .of the 
Flashlight is the ending of the first 
semester of the college term 10S6. 
1957. Television-wise, a plateau has 
been reached. The question, wheth- 
er to take the credits carefully and 
diligently accrued and flee this in- 
stitution or lay out approximately 
five hundred dollars and try' for the 
sixteen to twenty^two credit award 
for staying. Unfortunately "lack of 
funds has answered thia question for 
some, while low marks and poor 
college adjustment has settled the 
questicm for dthers. However, .the 
majority will look bade, breathe a 
launch sigh, and exclaim in poor 
granunar "Aint so ba4 after all; 
guess^^ m stiay for ■ a n o th e r round". 
No. isolation booth will enclose those 
electing to stay and no booth is 
needed. A competent faculty, a suf- 
ficient library, and an adequate 
place in which to study is the Ia8ur<« 
ance provided to win the game. 

However, about the award one 
' misconception . should be clarified. 
Grades are what you make themi 
Once it was acceptable to pass all 
life off as "What will be, will be", 
but the sad fact remains that grades 
are usually dependent upon study 
, habits. During orientation classes, 
the right ways to study , were dis- 
cunedr Thf»e methpdi "have been 
suggested, tried, and tested by in- 
terested educators backed by know- 
ledge gained from long study of 
ittudy by psychologists. Just how im- 
portant good study habits are can 
apt be realized until marks appear. 

^ those students just finishi:^ 
tiielr orientation course, I say: dc»rt 
be |ttided by the false sophistica- 
tion oi your classmates and sneer at 
what 3rou c^uld have gleaned from 
that one hour period per week — 
rather save your sneer for the 
classmate and practice the study 
.Mbits. . . ; _ 

At a froDk I remember bur orien- 

tation periods. Remaining espeeially 
cleat* is the case of one poorly ad. 
justed frosh who took much delist 
in teasing another student about 
his concern in forming a satisfec- 
tory study habit. Time has told what 
the instructor could not prove. To- 
day the teasing frosh of 1954 is do. 
ing manual labor (after flunking 
out) and the study-iiabit-conscious 
frosh Js near the top of prHeat 
junior class. 

Whilev we would not want college 
to become a completely regulated 
study-work-laden place, if good 
marks are desired as well as a good 
time, then more than a little effort 
must, be iriiown to achieve the re. 
suits. No job was ever succeisfuliy 
coinpleted without organization 'and 
hard work. As the new semester 
starts, perhaps a good axiom to re. 
member is one taken from Frank- 
lin's almanac "No man e'er was 
glorious who was .not laborious."

Jon Peterson Aids 
Qibson'ft Capers 

Probably the beSt defensive player 
on the basketball squad, Jon Peterson, 
is also one of Coach Gibaon's inoiA 
pleasant surprises thia year. Jon la 
rated by many as the lone player with 
the greatest potential on the club. He 
has improved steadily during the past 
two seasons and should really' -QCttM 
into his own this year. 

When Coaoh Gibson inaugurated 
the full court press, he had to find 
the right combination to work it ef- 
fectively. And big Jon seemed to fill 
this bill immecttately. ^Ttds pteaa. 
worked very well in the Xo^eoming ^ 
gamV aad "Petey- was Instrumental 
in making it successful. 

A|taiough he doesn't shoot too much, 
Jonls non-the-less one of the better 
rhot-, on the squad. He's got a beauti- 
ful one hand jump shot, which is' hard 
to slop inoany leai^. And he is very 
capable on drivci iad tap ins as well 
as from the iotd line. ^With liiis out- 
standing shoothig ability from almost 
anywhere on the court Jon should be 
among the scoring leaders on the 
Mountaineer squad. 

To be effective as a defensive ball 
player, it to xmmur to be dtrt,^ 
quick, and smart There is no time |o 
think before actingr you must be one 
step lUiead of your opponent Jon has 
shown exceptional ability along this 
line. He is quick to grab a loose ball 
adept in stealing the ball or inter., v 
cepting passes, , and accurate when 
passing to a teammate. He has forc- 
ibly blocked many opponents' ahota 
and is "a very able rebounder. 

Aside flt)m shooting, Jon's often- 
siye value also includes some fine 
ball-handling. His passes are quick 
and accurate; his timing is excep- 
tional. He is able to draw the defense 
on a fast break and can get the ball 
to the man for whom it waa intended. 
He dribbles well and werics plays to 

Beyond his varsity activities. Jon 
is al9a .active in the intarmural bas- 
ketball league. He referees a good 
share of the games and, when not of- 
ficiating, is the coach of wie of the 
better intarmural teams. Phi Sigma 
Pi. Because basketball is ' his first love, 
"Petey" will be one of the major fUe^ 
tora in the aueoilHr of Msnafiiild^

Joe Unkoski Ficjt Hoopster To Be 
Selected As Athlete Of Month 


Getting back to sports talk, ;.we 
might make a few observa|aioni$ with.^ 
out treading on anybodies toes. I 
have discussed the overall sports 

picture here at Mansfield with sev- 
eral instructors and some other col- 
lege officials. It iis generally agreed 
'most of those contacted that there is 
d^itely somehing lacking, that 
some changes "should^' be made. Mostt 
feel that our vanity representatives 
require a great deal of improvement. 

Then the. question appeared, why 
have varsity sporjbs at all? Why not 
emphasize some oher activity which 
involves more people and costs— less 
money? The answer to these ques- 
tions are simple. This is a teiacher 
traiiyag ins^lnition. ^Siere are inter- 
wS b i ^ Mim artiviflftr In the public 
Sdiools. We must be prepared and 
adjusted to l^ese athletic events and 
therefore are required to have ttiem 
in this college. ' ,

Ljke the proverbild duck that takes

hardwood each fall.' Don began bis 
basketball career, you might say. the 
day he was old enough to walk. 

"Panzer", as his teammates call 
him, has been playing baske|i)idl for 
the better part of fifteen years. A 
native of Carbondale, Pa., Don threw 
his first basketball through the hoop 
at the Carbondale Y.M.C.A. There 
he developed graudually, learning 
the fundamentals of l^e gam4 By 
the time he was - a sophomore at-

Now in his fourth season as the var- 
sity center, Link has always shown 
oijistanding ability. But this- year- 
.promises to be the greatest in his 
long career. , 

During hiS" many appearances on 
the hardwoods, Joe has accumulatsd 
745 points and 329 rebounds. He holds 
the single game scoring record, for 
the college gymnasium and has I'i^e 
opportunity, this seas:«j. of beconiing 
Mansfield's all-time scoring chanip. 
ion. Joe has improved^ Steadily season 
by season and has always be^n a 
steady, dependable ball player. Take 
last year for instance— in 18 appear- 
ances he gf|'|iered 231 points, an av- 
erage of 13 per game, and pulled in 
a total of 118 rebounds. 

Although he's a t?ig .gu3:»_weli.nvS 
200 pounds, Joe none-the-less moves 
with a great d sal of finesse. He g^ts 
good position on re'.ounds, is artful 
in getting around h"s man, and is 
extremely well adapted to the p'vot 
position. His defensive work leaves 
little to be desired — he is more grace- 
ful l^n the average b'g guy which 
.helps when trymg,to. outwit an op- 

In the opening ^ame of the s?ason, 
Joe led the Mounts l'.o a 63-53 victory 
over a tough Lycoming aggregation. 
He sat out most of the first period, 
bu't once he got in th^re the Mounts 
got the lift they needed. In three - 
periods of action, Joe hit seven times 
from the field and t!rwice from the 
foul line^ lead the Mansfteld^Tscor- 
ing with sixteen points. 

Then, in the Lock Haven thriller 
big L-nk renlly held a hot hand, hi>:- 
ting ten times from the field and 
ten times from tha foul line for h's 
top /^tal of 30 points. His overaH 
contribution to 'this victory was not 
only his t)uftstanding scoring perform- 
ance. In |5he course of the evening, 
Joe collected 11 rebounds being j»qual- 
ly efficient in clearing both the of- 
fencive and defensive boards. And, 
of all his 30 points^ the^ 10 mostlini!^ 
portant came^ in IfSag^ hectic final 
frame wh.'^h the tight cont^ was 
finally decided.

on fire, leading his !team in scoring, 
and being selected to the league's

this away game, but the spei^^tors 
spread ^iroughont |Uie gym so that 
was practically impossible and 
quite discouraging to get in front of 
strange faces to cheer. Even if the, 
cheerleaders don't go lio an awajB

. P.M. last night. This was jihe first 
r Tneetlng of these two clubs in many 
years; neither had seen the othif iii • 
adUon. But if comparitive sooras 
mean anything, the game waf " imife^ ' 
ably a real thriller. 

Both dubs have dropped decisions 
to Cortland (NY) State Teachers 
College. The records of bo(ih squads 
are about the same. The competition 
on the Rochester schedule — is- about 
of equal calibre to tha|t of the ICaoff- 
field schedule. With few breaks, the 
Mounts will definitely cofne home 
with another victory. 

Last Saturday 'nigh<l the Mounts 
dropped their first conference game 
r^oi the season to a tough Bloomsburg 
outfit 83-79. The game was vii^:,ually 
decided in the first quarter as the 
Huskies rolled up a commanding 30- 
14 lead. Mansfield could never over- 
. come that 16 pojnt deficll althdUgh 
othey outscored tiie vblting I'^achers 
in ev'ery quarter excepl'. the first. 

Bill Swisher was the hot man for 
the evening rolling up a totol of 28 
points. In the first qua^!ier, his " li, 
points sparked the early drive which 
carried his BUoom qqintet to victory. 
Jim Gui^teve, Len K»2ik;-'lintf Bob 
Boyie also hit double figures for the ' 
visitors with 18, 14, and 14 points 

On the. Mansfield side of the pic- 
ture, J oe WIt o w skI onc e agai y -ifeew^- 
ed his outstmding competitive spirit 
In leadihg the local's offensive and 
defensive attacks. His j^wenty points 
was the high total on the Mansfield 
side of the ledger as was his 12 re- 
bounds. His play on the couitt was 
even more tremendous. , 
. Mike: G:amble Jooked .gpod in the 
Ijltter part of the game canning six 

' points in the final seconds. His ^votal 
of 12 points was the third time this 
season he finished a varsity game in 
double figures. Joe Linkoski, Gary 

^^nderle, and Jon Pc^'^rson also did 
some excellent woxk in Ifansfield's 

: futae attempt to overcome' the Rus^ 
kiess tremendous fixate quarter i% 

Don Lee again showed his versa- 
tility on the court as he, too, played 
a tremendous all around ball game. 
His 18 t>oiE|^ caine as' a result of 
hard ttriyittg- and wcanny shooting. 
In . fact, his outside shooting kept 
Mansfield's hopes alive throughout 
the conltest 


When the Mounts traveled to Cort- 
land last Wednesday, mo^t of them 
came back wishing they would have 
stood in bed. It was by far the worst 
eiriiibition of the year for (the local 
cagers as they could seem to do noth- 
ing right Time and again a bad pass 
or a forded shot would cause the 
Mour|!» to lose possession. And many 
times they could not take advantage 
of the breaks which pres^ted them- 
selves. . ' 

CoilUand's height and i^eed was 
also a deterring force in the way * of 
local success. With three starters 
above the 6 ft. 5 in. mark and speed 
to bo(fj, the homester^ pounced on 
every Mahsfield miscue an^ prompt- 
ly turned it into a score. With- the 
second and third teams seeing moalt 
of the action in tiie final quarter, 
Cortland even then continued to run 
up the score as Mansfield's defense 
pra^My . <mQapsa4 

At Lock -flaven 'oh January 12, the 
Mounts bull-dozed their way to a 
smashing 56-43 victory over the 
Golden Eagles. The game was one of 
!the roughest of the season as big

With anothw temeiter MUad ui

cance of the following excerpt froni 
a student's letter to his mother. Witli

repeat this quotatiin. 
"I got my marks, and they're all 

Now isn't that a pity. 
But don't you worry, mother, dear,

And at a time like this— at least

to serve on committer. Committeoi

this, committees for that! 

In February, ttie sCu'dents at MSTC 
spend the majority of their "leisure" 
time paiticipating in ieleictions, cele- 
bi^ting birUidays, chopping down 
cherry trees, sending valentines 
signed "Guess Who?," and wearing 
spring outfits one day and over- 
coats aM bools file niext. Yes, it's the 
time of year whm you are permitted 
to "wear your heart on your sleeve."

hind their desks again, and it seems 
that their new motto is: "If you can't 
convince them, confuse them." Of

that severid fraternity men have?

Of the. many things which students do, 6t can do, during 
their spare time, it seems that one of the favorites is complaining 
about the student government. This, of course, is advantageous to 
any form of govemmenment. A bit of constructive criticism nev- 
er hurt anyone or anything when properly done. However, com- 
plaining is misdirected criticism. 

The student government has been established with the pur- 
pose in mind of allowing the students to govern themsi^ves. The 
student government establish^ the rules and regulations which 
fit the needs of the student body at this time, JTie student sfov- 
emment represents you. Or does it? 

How can the student government do, or attempt to do, what 
the students diesire if the miembers are never informed of these 
desires? ° \ 

We complain about what the student government does^ot- 
do, but how ofte^ do we go to the student government to com- 

. .... '-'T" . ' ^ - , 

How can yie say that the student government of ficers^ are 
otir representatives if we do not elect them? 

In the last Student Council election, only 413 votes were 
cast on the first day. In a student enrollment of over 700, this 
voting record dioes not look very impressive. But it is actually 
wlorse than that. On the second day when "run-offs" were held, 
only 274 students could be bothered with elections. The general 
apathy toward elections, by students who wiU soon be teaching 
democracy to ishttFiii, !^ 

With a voting record like this, do we honestly have a right 

to complain ?

C^les Gvtlerrea 

A question that has been bandied 
abqut for a number of years is that 
which considera the merits or the de- 
merits of the condensed book se- 
lections which are flooding the 
mails and filtering ihto^ i^re tM 
more homes each year. There are 
many clubs and organizations which 
iftiive on the produrtion of such 
CONDENSED BOOKS club, which 
calls PleasahtviUe, N. Y. its home 
base, is probably the best of these 
o. ganizations. However, we must de- 
fine our criteria for evaluation be- 
fore we can justly say that one con- 
densed book^ is better or ^poorer than 

First the currency of the selections 
cariiwd Is imporuuic Since much of 
the fun in reading is being aide to 
discuss one's riding with others, it 
is a good feature if a dub carries 
popular novels which are being read 
r»y others. Nert the method of con- 
densation should be considered; does 
the abridgement give a full picture 
of the novel, retain much of the 
author's tone, and yet meet the de- 
mands of the buatnosman, house- 
wife, or student wiiose reading time 
is budgeted? Another important cri- 
terion is the balahce. That is, does 
the volume give the reader a var- 
iety of material? A final point is the 
price. Students especially will be 
conscious of this factor. About $15 a 
y^r would-be a fair price. 

So much for the dubs— please 
bear in mind, howevek, liiat many 
dubs carry one well-known selec- 
tion, virhich is mercilessly abridged, 
and fill up the volume with liteiary 
trash. The next consideraion invol- 
ves the merit of the condensed book 
as an American institution. True, 
the American way of life is cali- 
brated to a fa^ pitch, and qp^lity 
some H mies bows' to efficiency. utiUty. 

. an^ pneltcality, but then the ques- 
tion 'ranains: Is it better to gain a 
ilimi ed familiarity and appreciation 
of many books or draw the full bene- 
fit from only one in the same amount 
of time? Yoi^r writer would say that 
one's answer to the previous que&- 
tion shotdd be determined by evalua« 

""ting one's daily life and arrivhig at a 
figure which would roughly indicate 
the amount of time that could be 
spent in reading without causing a 
disbalance resulting in the neglect 
of other important facets of life. If 
only a few hours a week are avail- 
able for reading, Iby M means take 
advantage of a condensed book ^ub 
offer. If there is plenty of time avail- 
able, one caimot find a substitute 
for the original. It is very easy to 
lose the author's genuine breath and 
spirit tzKHigfi over-conunercialbdng 
and adulteration.

For most of us the days of the 
"Floating Twenty", the "free hair- 
cut" and the long "clothing line" are 
just an unpleasant memoiry. However, 
if Selective Service director, Lewis 
B. Hershey's latest proposal to Con- 
gress is ratified, it womd mean a 
possible induction of nearly five mill- 
Ion so-called draft avoiders!' Hershey 
has testified that there are five mill- 
ion men (late teens and early 20's) 
who were not in the service and are 
not associa ^d with any of the var- 
ious reserve units. Broken down, this 
figure includes 14^ million fathers, 
2:3 million iFs "wid Vh million men 
in college or essential occupations. 
This program, according to Mr. Her- 
shey, is to eliminate any recalling o£ 
former servicemen, but I see it as a 
means of supplementing the antici - 
pated loss in our total Armed Forces 
that is expected under the new six- 
moath S ate Guard Training Pro- 
gram. I |>elieve that #ii9 program was 
introduccKi simply to take the prefr- 
Bure off Ihe hew guard program. 
Now, with two programs, Congress 
will only have to choose the one that 
would effect fewer people; conse- 
quei\,ly, it would receive less criti- 
cism — Simply the old story of choos- 
ing the lesser of the two evils. This 
liegislatioa, along with ..the so-called 
Eisenhower Doctrine, should have a 

direct effect on Korean Vets and 
bears ou^ intelligent attention by 
supporting ' the various Veterans or^. 
ganizations in their action on these 
programs. , 

An interesting ?act, especially whSB' 
you're looking for some side-lights 
when teaching social studies^ is the 
annotmcement from the Defense De- 
partment that on Memorial Day, 
1958, it wUl entomb TWO MORE UN- 
KNOWN SOLDIERS in Arlington 
National Cemetery, one from World 
War II and one from the Korean 
"War." These two unsung heroes 
will be laid to final rest alongside 
the tomb of the Unknown Soldier of 
World War I. A great tribute to those 
who made the supreme sacxifice and 
more protrf to people who think ,the 
Korean bout was merely a snappy 

poijca^ AI3TIQN. : , ; ^ 

If there were such a thing as a 
Vet of the year on our campus, I 
think this award could very well go 
to~,3teve PopividH, who helped so 
much in maldh)Er Religion in Life 
Week the success it was. Steve, if 
you'll recall, was the chairman of 
the Grecian Sing held in December. 
The Grecian Sing was an innovation 
to our campus, one that is sure to be 
repeated to Steve's cen ering 

drive on the {uroject. Needless-to-say, 
we ajLways see Steve in churdk

The purpose of the campus survey 
will be to determine the best loca- 
tions for new buil4in|^ in the near 
and distant future. 

"In the past, bulldtogs were just 
put he re or there, but now the cam- 
pus' will be planned," Mr Stahlman 

The .removal ol the administra- 
tive offices from North HaU will 
leave more space for women's dor. 
mitory roojns. However, contruc- 
tion of additional donnitory facili- 
ties for both men and women is also 
"definitely in the picture." Mr. Stahf- 
man declared. Whether or not this 
constiuetimi wffl take the form of 
^ two new separate dormitory build- 
ings is yet to be decided. It is not 
certain when work on this project 
will b^to. altiibugh it may be within 
a relatively short time. 

College dassroom facilittes will 
also be improved. Onm of 4^ pur- 

poses of tile coming campus survey 

is to diecide whether the Education 
Center will be remodeled or wheth- 
er it will be torn down and a new 
building erected. 

Mr. StahlmaA noted that "if we 
build more buildings, we will have to 
' srease our power." An expansion 
of electric and other utility systems 
at the college is therefore slated to 
be made. 

'Rlia expar^sion of the physical 
property at the college is based on a 
cb:[|9ti|ntly expantling enrollment. 
Which may well exceed twelve hun- 
dred in a few years. 

Mr. Stahlman mentioned that many 
improvements have been made on 
Nwth Ittall ~Tn"-~ reowt yeaiS. "TSfie" 
vnmm'* 4<nndtofy romns are at the 
pnsvsait tiBM in the prbeeas of being 
repainted. Thi kitchen and bakery 
were rebuilt a few years ago, and 
Mr. Stahlman believes that the 
building's dining facilities will be 
able to providj^ for the larger num- 
ber of student in ^ ittft^ 
much stndn. _ 

As bustoins manager of tke college, 
Mr. -Stahlman is responsible to foe 
president to regard to the mainten- 
ance of the buildings and grounds, 
the operation of the dining room 
and kitchen, the dormitories and 

their equipment, other student ifir- 

vlees, and the peisonnel oCOee fior-

agent for the college and prepares

tion in Harrisburg. 

Mr. Stahlman is manager of the

The realization of a Student Un-

Ivy League Fashions 
Invade MSTCCanp^us 

By Celie Sullivan ' " 
Have you paid attention recently 
to the fashions to our campus? Some . 
of these have been around quite 
a while. Others have made thf^r de- 
but only to the past few monfiis. 
The new fadiions might possibly be 
called fads. Pads are so called until 
they establish true permanency, after 
which they become fashions. On our 
small campus it often takes lon ger f or 
new fashions to make their appai?. 
ance th^ it does in luser schools} 
At tha<f»viaanl time Mansfield seems 
to' be ttp to dite and holdtog her own 
— in college clothes fashions. 

In my survey I have foimd tii^ 
foUowtog fads 'tiid fiwhions to he in 
the spotlight: 

Ivy League is promtoent every- 
where.. The small tabs and buckle are 
oh ^e^ bade of girls' skirts and fel- 
lows' pants. There are caps that also 
have this buclde on them. Eveiy 

other shirt and blouse ts a striped 
one. ^nee socks in every color from 
red to yellow are worn with skirts 
and also with Bermuda shorts. White 
bucics and saddles are tkporlid i^y 
both fellows and girls. , 

A few weeks ago when the tem- 
perature fell below zero many to- 
habitants of North Hall wore small 
angora hats which tied under the 
chto to keep their ears warm. Car 
coats are being worn by many on 
our campus. Most of these coats 
have a hood whidi may be worn up 
or down. Wot Ghristmse Santa left 
crew neck sweaters to- many stu- 
dents. Pearl collars add a decorative 
toudi to sweaters, and blanlcet ' skirts 
have recently htCMaar-pigp^ v»tth 
a few girls. . 

Have you seen Vince Sira<hise. Bill 
Dewey, Jon Peterson, and their 
crew weartog their light khaki all- 
weather coats which are similar to 
Baracuda coats? Aren't they sharp! 

In the next few months take note 
of the fads which are worn and aee

Unaided by the 85th Cong ess, the 
Soviet Union or the public school 
teacher, another February has thrust 
herself upon us. Only Crod in his 
heavenly Court^ loiows ttte- emRit^ 
number of times this phsnomenon 
has occurred; but since 713 B. C, 
when the Roman King Numa Pom- 
pilius added two months, Januariu's 
and Februarius, to the o iglnal ten- 
inonth Roman Calendar, we^ have 
been aware of February. 

Closer examination of Febnjary's 
2670 years of existence reveals more 
distinction that is apparent by cini- 
paring her with her older sisters 
dating from the eighth century B.C 
For one distinction ahe has alwf^... 
been shorter, -and dowly related to 
this distinction, she uses the preroga- 
tive that all women of every century 
use. She changes her mind! Every 
fourth year she admits to being a 
day longer. 

The custom of sending "Valen- 
tinei^* to one's beloved is also 
choieii distinction claimed i^ f'e^lmr-- 
ary as her very own. bne source 
states "Saint Valentine, a bishop and 
martyr of the church, was put to 
death at Rome for his faith during 
■the persecution under Claudius II, 
14 Febiuary 270. The custom of 

EUen W« igle 

choosing Valen tines «x)n his, jday is of 
considerable antiquity. On the eve 
of Satait Valentine's day young 
people of both sexes U8e4 to meet 
and each of them drew one by lot 
from a number of names of the op- 
posite sex, which were put into a 
conunoiL reccqptade. Each gent thus, 
got "1 iHy fair his Vidcntlne, uid be- 
came tile Vilantint of hii lady." 

Another source says that "the cftis- 
tom of sending Valentin«i or love 
tokens usually anonymous , t o one 's 
beloved^ valentine had n^t .prob- 
ably only an accidental connection 
With St. VaTentlne and owed its ori- 
gin rather to the conventional med- 
ieval belief, held gene, ally in Eng 
land and France, that it was at the 
start of the second fortnight of t;»e 
second month tliat the birds began 
to mate. "For this yraa oh seyt Val- 
entines rfay" wrote Chaucer in the 
Parlement of Foules "whan every 
foul^ cometh ther to chese his mate". 

More serious (if possible) than 
Valentines pay and Cupid is the fact 
that three g eat Americans were 
.bom during February and two .4a|Ri 
are celebrated. 

Hardly known to most people Na- 
tional Freedom Day, which is cele- 
brated on February first, commem- 
oorates the signing by Biesidait Lir^ 
coin of the document to abolish 
slavery. , , 

The anniyerTO^ -Of Lhieoln's birth 
is oelebrated oh the twelfth. Writing 
of the great emancipator, a current 
writer has said: "Lincoln came to' 
view the Civil War as God's w^r Of 
removing slavery and punishing 41^ 
people, both Njorth and Souift, lor 
the sin ttuit ^ tthared on aeeeunt of 
slavery. And he came to, look upon 
himiBelf humbly aS God's man, God's 
human agent in the working' out of 
his mysterious providence". 

Closely following Lincoln's LKSh" 
day on the 12th is Susan B. Anthmiy 
Day on iOie ISth. This ptoheer 
sader saw equal rights for women -

On a wet «Hi 'tofgy^ABgurt 

ing, as the USS WISCONSIN (BB-64) 
steamed slowly up the iagg^Hl coast 
of Scotland, my initiil impression of 
the Land o' the Scots* was indeed a 
meak one. Standing near the port 
Hfaline with the salt teste of the 
North Atlantic spray upon il^w, 'X 
-tightened my foul weather Jadket 
and glumly wondered where Scoft 
W Mwf a # i t| |i w i d r iBceBjUw ?to cre- 
ate such inspiring and lovely verse 
about a country seemingly so dismal. 

Many Ohnes I had read of proud 
daa 4a^an«, old catties, and the 

whisper of romance beside a quiet 
lake in a. valley of lush foliage. I 
'could cMOte' the m^td picture of 
"the stag who at eve had drimk his 
fill," and even could hear the bay- 
)ing of £be hounds M ih^ 0Bve ^wae 
through the highlands. And 'I 1^ 
always dreamcsd of the y^^iam^ txmsi 
Bc^etfs Montuxumt Or ^is Casfie in 
Edinburg. I felt dirill«sioned V* and 
bitter. Could this gray and cold 
coaiHtline actually be the beautiful 
country «Mit "2 im M mm 
tc visit" 

My ideas were, fortunately, to be 
short-lived. We were making good 
time and nearing the small town ^ 
Cgithness sow. liie ship / made a 
sharp light itwm and suddenly emer- 
ged from the fog cloud. I looked up 
end there before me, approximately 
a mile south of the 210-foot Cliff of 
Duncansby Head, were the three 
jagged roclcs detached from the 
mainland and known as ^e Sta^ 
of Duncansby. 

"Que bellissima." I murmured to 
myiwlf, unconsciously ealUng to mind 
an expression that my old grandfath- 
er had often used ^en enraptured 
by the paintings of ^e early Benais. 
sance Italians. 

Almost as high as the cliff itself, 
the individual Stacks tapered against 
a background of color that created a 
vivid and startling contrast to the 
eye— the cliff, a dark orange with 
bright green moss creeping down its 
weathered' crags, reaching places be- 
yond the pink base and white shell 
stone into the blue water itself— and, 
the Vellow Stacks, isolated and de- ' 
minding in theh; i>eauty. 

For a moment it seemed as though 
I heard the sound of the Siren Circe's 
voice drifting I'ghtly across the 
water to me. A sailor's fancy!— and 
quickly forgotten in the suddsn 
burst of sunVght that, iloedid -Bm^ 
camftty Head and the Stadcs wfth ufr- 
believeaUe grandeur. 

The ship glided on towards Its an- 
clwrage area, the small city of Gree- 
ne^. The drizzly rain had ceased, 
the penetrating fog vanished and 
now the sun was revealing the coast 
of ScoUand in all its historical gloir. 
There was the dark and sinister 
Eileen Donan Castle on loch Duidc, 
a rebuilt at ongh<nd of the Maeken- 
zies of Saidorth. And only minutes 
vlater, the dream ' world of Loch 
Coulin in Ross-Shire opened before 
my eyes. Hill roads wound north- 
wards, skirting the Loch and disap- 
pearing into the highlands. Majestic 
m'-untains. capped, in snow, reflect- 
ea the azure of the sky. 

The jBU tye of tbe >^s^ eoon iseeune 

qweloiiis but coiqr bosom, was Green- 
ock, the rustic village with littl'i 
houses laid out in such a pattern t.^at 
they reminded me of Thomas Mor- 
ley's words, "all alike and stancHn' 
a roo." The ocean sweeps Greenock's 
shores and lashes at the breakwater 
rocta in ete sal beauty. T st oo d I n. 
silent fusination. . _ ' 

ScoUand is truly- e^'lMWiy. boiihy" 
cpuhitry, and. in the words of Scott, 
a 'i||»gg«d etrand of "blown heath 
«Pd ahaggy wood." When I left I 
promiaed myself that I would on© 
day return to capture the bit of my 
heart that remained in the highlands.

Pic urt.^ were supposed to have 
/been taken of the Geography Club at 
their last meO ing. This was not done. 
Bill Farrell, preiiident of the club, 
was a lit le perturbed albout the at- 
Itendance at thi.s n>eetlng because the 
i^i^eM\ ion of the club in the pic- 
jture would not have justified the 
club's memberahip. However it should 
ibe no ed that the meeting was held on 
Registration Day, January 28, and 
many of the students had not ye^. re- 
turned from mid -semester vacation. 

Ma.ny students seem to be mixed up 
as to the relation of the Geography 
Club to the geography fraternity. 
Gamma Theta Upsilon. To belong to 
the dub one must have an all-college 
aven^ «HL one point, and to belong to 
the fratenoity one must have a^f.5 aU-. 
college average. Thus, all members of 
the fraternity are in the club; yet 
there are many members of the club 
who are not eligible for membership 
jn t .e fraternity. This may help to 
straighten out the mat/ er a little for 
any prospective nteiiifoeira

Gib l|a«#e . 

Freshman Center Stars 
In Keyhole Position 

One of the most pleasant surprises 
of the current court season has been 
the outstanding play of Gib Moore. 
The big guy from Shomokin has 
shown so much aggressiveness and 
so much potential ability hat Coach 
Gibson was practically forced to give 
him a varsity berth. And he has 
proven ' his varsity capabilities over 
and over since being moved up. 

By no means the tallest . man on 
the squad, Gib is still probably the 
bes^ center around. AU of his. shots 
juFO»ffld~^-keyhole are extreme^ 
accurate>-'he has, been endowed with 
the best hook shot since the dnya of 
Ed Merritt. He has an effective one 
hand shot and scores often as a re- 
sult of his tap-in shot. While Gib's 
one hander is most accurate fro^'^ 
the pivot position, he also uses 
it from the cornet. In fact it' was 
thi8 coriMr-typa shot that won the 
Lycoming ganie foe $he Mounts. 

Although he gives a height advan^ 
tage to the taller centers, Gib is a 
more capable rebounder. He's tough, 
under the boards and moves quiclUy 
in either direction. When he comes 
down - With -a^ r ebou n d, he?s ^ifapong 
enough to hang onto the ban and

More important than anything else, 
however, is the fact that Gib Moore 
WANTS to play ball. Above all else 
he has the will to win. He has talent 
and uses it in the best interest of <^ 
the team. His desire and d^termioa- 
tion overcome any . other handicap he 
may have. Unlike some of ,the others, ■ 
Gib keeps himself hi axcellent con-

PAO^ nvi 



Whenever a person assumes leader- 
ship, he also .assumes great reflponsi- 
bUl ies. His views and aettcms are Ib- 
iegxtd.pqrta of the individuals under 
his command.' fiUa influence is exerted 
ia-sreat force upon the' develpop^ea< 
of his subordinates. 

There exist two great opposi es in 
this matter of leadership. In the first 
case, the leader is^ust thati - a leader. 
He helps and aids the people under 
faimr h^ points out errors in develop- 
- men y and tries to understand the 
needs of the whole group; he makes 
quick and sensible decisions. This 
first type has a positive approach 
which keeps him and his people in a 
certain unity in which he whole is 
greater than any individual part 

Than there is he second case, the 
leader who would ra^r be an ab- 
solute authority. This i^e acc^!s the 
advice of no one. has very few kind 
things to say o his subordinates, and 
in general makes life pretty miserable 
for those associated wi' h him. His is 
ia negative approach - - only criticisan 
is forthcoming, and few, if any, meet 
wi h his CO nplete approval. He is 
auick to berate an iTidividual but 
rarely compliments or praises a Job 
well done. 

Most; traders are between • heso' two 

. extremes'. But those who tend oward 

the positive approach are always suc- 
cecsful eachers are those who are 
liked and admired by their students. 
They help their people and are help- 
■ed by t .em. The eitire group works 
a and is part of the complete pro- 

Uniiuccessful teachers are those 
who attemp to dominate those 
who try to f orc#^ leaminff down the 
throa s of their pupils. This type of 
teacher, or leader is resoundly hated 
•and intensely disliked. His superior 
atti ude leaves a distaste and mistrust 
in the mind»s of his pupils. 

A coach is a leader. His task is 
identical to he task • of any other 
leader. He is a teacher. His accept- 
ance of \^jfffl>i^uc0aXii'y of leader- 
ship autO!mi^^i^; fits him. into this 
categdry. Successful coaches are like 
succeaslul eachers and vice versa. 

The first thing «l coach must real- 
ize \s that each of his players is firs!; 
an indiv^daul. £ach individual is 
different - - with desires and interes s 
different from those of any o her in- 
d^ividual. The individual must be han- 
led as his personality dicta es He 
must be fitted im o the group with ex- 
reme care and lurecaution. He must 
be led to a certain objective suid not 
be forced into it. 

Since time hnmemorable, mto have 
triedjtp coerce and other 
men. Never has it been successful. 
Only in its mo$ severe form can this 
type of leadership retain power. 

Ni^ither can this tjrpe of leadership 
resul in success in the field of ath- 
letic coaching. Each athlete has limits 
to his capabilitiei^^ He can be led in 
he right direction an<i can be taught 
new techniques. With proper encour- 
agement, he can reach the peak of 
his capabilities and then use ;his {Util- 
ity to the advantage of himself and 
and his earn. BUT NO AMOUNT OF 

;'Bir Belt Keanaa 

coach who tries it will have it thrown 
right back- in his ^ce. 

TAe greater majort y of atudentS 
here at Mansfield will become teach- 
ers and coaches. We can learn by ob- 
serving our teachers and our coaches. 
We can learn from their successes or 
'rem their failures. Only if we be- 
•«ome blinded by our own obsessions 
>vi]l we no be acutely aware of each 
411 nation as it develops before fu. •

The'Mounts gave their most bril- 
lian. performance of th^ aeascn'tvhen 
th^^rdi^opped a fil-fi&^overtitnf tlurill- 
er to Cortland S.T.C. on the local 
* hardwood. A las. record' top-in shot 
gave Cortland its hardest won victory 
ol t le year as th« Moun s played 
steady, consistL'nt ball throughout 
the entire gatne. The closeness of the 
score was especially interesting since 
Cortland (13-4) was the same club 
hat humbled Mansfield In an 

■earlier meeting. 

Ga y Enderle played the best game 
cf his college careijr in holding the 
Cntland tall men to a minimum 
while scoring fraely hi nself . His tre- 
mendous play on boLh offense and 
defen d gave <5ary the honors as the 
star of t '.e ga-ne. But alj the other 
g played exceptionally well and 
deserved the enthusiastic plaudits' 
which t; ey received from a most gen- 
erous crowd. 

Ithaca College preT^nted an even 
more foriniable group of ball players 
whtn they took on Mansfield on t'le 
I^ew York court. The Ithacans could 
I'eem to do no wrong while the 
Mounts s;:c ned impoLent and listles^ 
during mc3t of the contest. Midway 
through the final half Ithaca had a 
comfortJjle 34 point margin after 
which the. reserves played ou. the re- 
maining time. Mansfield took advan- 
tagj of the situa ion to make the 
final score of d7-82 look a little nwMre 

None c f ho Mounts looked excep- 
tionally outstanding on this Ithaca 
visit. Mike Gamble had his bes night 
of the year wlt i 20 points. Joe Wit- 
owski also had 20.^Ctary Enderle did 
not play. ^ 
■ The home cour and the* home^ 
crowd were pleasing sights to the 
Ma^isfield cagers as they again looked 
Jike a good ball club beating Brock- 
port S.T.C. 79-67. The Moun s started 
fast and led the visitors by nine 
ipoints after he first quarter of play. 
But Brockport rallied fast and built 
up a six poin. lead midway through 
the final quarter. Then the tide re- 
Versed again aa Mansfield came 
storming back, not 'Mily overcomhig 
;he lead, but also Running up t^ 
more consecutive points before alliSw- 
ing a Brockport score. 
■ The turning point of the game came 
. when Joe Witowski hit seven for 
seven from the charity strip)© to drop 
the Brockporters behind for good. 
-Hal-Hansen direc.ed the team well 
and accumlated 18 points in the 
course of the game. 

Lycoming College, idao felt' the 
power of Mansfleld^s renerived vigor 
when he Mounts copped a 66-65 
chiller on the Williamsport court. Gih 
Moore's one hander from the comer 
with only five seconds remaining 
til ed the s<;ore to the success side of 
the Mansfield ledger. The game, the 
crowd, the officials, and the coaches 
were all on edge through ou, this nip 
and tuck affair. Neither team cDiild.

the next few cage seasons at Mans- 
field^ S.T.C. The main reason being 
that this year's junior varsity squad 
is'" "loaded" with an abundance of 
playing talent. Three Frosh, in parti- 
cular, figure to make the road easiax 
to travel. This daziding trio, Mike 
Gamble, Gib Moore, and Ron Fire- 
stone, have already cradced the var- 
sity lineup and distinguished thent- 
selves under fire. 

The ifuture Moimts, who will cu^ 
ry the Mansfield baiiher through the 
basketball wais, show promise of 
developing into a high scoring unit. 
In five junor varsity engagements, 
the Junior Mounts have averaged 65 
points per game, scoring 325 points 
to the opposition's 277. Of the five 
games play«d, the Ll.tle' Mountain- 

^rs have c^e out on top i&ree 
ttimes, gid^ing splits with Lock 
Haven and Lycoming. One of the set 

~1^ckis coming by a narrow one point 
margin. The other victory was a solo 
conquest over Blooquiblirg. 

Gib Moore stands out ka tiie most 
prolific scorer on the Junior squad, 
gainering 93 poinLs for an average 
of 18 a game. Second in line is Ron 
r li es one. Red" has compiled a to- 
tal of 82 points for a 16 points per 
game average. Mike Gamble, who 
saves most of his points fox the var- 
sity games, ranks third with 47 l^inti 
or a niike point per game average. 
Clarence "Bucky" White has cashed 
in 16 field goals and three foul con- 
versions for a 35 point total. Don 
Grodis, whose main forte is gather- 
ing rebounds, f o lows with 28 points. 
Dick Mitchell and Larry Biddle. with 
16 and 6 points re^ectively, round 
out the scorers. Another member of 
the team, l^ul Btann plays a steady 
game and is one of the hustlera on 
the junior squad. 

The junior varsity was, enhanced 
with the addition of four newcomers, 
Gi Morse, Al Zyga, Phil De witt and

many long hours in the ^aeactice.

of Mansfield's inter-coUegiate con- 
tests. All the years and all the games 
have added stature to his brilliant 


Although all of his athletic activi- 
«es 0f past years have been duly con- 
Bidered, it was hia «cUon. during the 
month of January which led to the 
selection of Joe Witowski as Athlele 
of he Month. In each of the Mount's 
post-Christmas court encounters, Joe 
inevitably led the squad in one way 
or ano her. Even if the team in geeer* 
al had a poor night, Joe would b» the' 
one alone in the Mparfield eaiiie. 
Coach Gilieon has xMver had an u^ 
complimentary thing to aay about him 
und many oppoaing coaches have eac* 
pressed a great deal of enthualum 
over hia baakettMOl abflf y. 

In the month of January al^ne, 
"Wit" led the Mountaineer scoring 
115 poin s and rebounds with 85. His 
high point total thus far was the

except for big Joe who came through 
with hia usual brilliant partormanee. 

Hia bed: defensive came in the 
Lock Haven game when he grabbed 
an amazing total of 21 rebounds. The 
game was probably the roughest in 
body contact as any this season and 
Joe was up for the occasion with su- 
perior baU -hawking and play-malcing. 
He also added 12 pointo to Manafield'a

The Lycoming victory was Joe'a 
most consis ent yame as he kept the 
Mounts in the game throughout the 
eveaing. It was a game in which 
Mansiield went as Joe Witowaki went 
His .wenty points were evenly dia- 
tributed throughout the lour quarters, 
and he waa really the oifmaive 
st r ength behind t5i^lBad att|Kfc.^^ y 

In all of the o her gamues^ Joe did 
equally well. No other player on the 
iSquad has been so de<»endable. His 
leadership on the court aids immeas- 
urably to vhe Mansfield oause. Hia 
spirit and determination have been 
instrumental hi wha'.ever suecaai 
Mansfield has had this year.

From 1. to r. Merle BCaxson, Dean, Earlley, and Shirley Saadroek* 

A special weekly activity, jperiod 
designed to give students more tima 
.for extra-dass activities has been 
approved by the administration coun- 
. ciL It wiU go into effect in Septem* 
ber, 1957. 

The plan, which was proposed by 
Jthe. Student Council, will- set aside 

each Thursday at 2 p. m. for cer- 
tain meetings. The first Thursday of 
each month will be for the Student 
Government Association, special 
meetings, and student elections. On 
the second Thursday class - meetings 
will be held, and on the third week 
of the month four organizations will- 
meet. These groups are: Phi Mu 
Alpha, Lambda Mu, Kappa Omicron 
Phi, and Sigma Zeta. The fourth 
Thursday will be devoted to the 
Men's and Women's Dormitory .!^- 
soetkfoiiis, and ta tbe Day Students 


Student Council advised that there 
were good reasons for the change. It 
would eiMble ijoiis day students to 
participate move ful^ in college acti. 
vities. It Would give more time for 
class meetings, which are now held 
during the crowded lunch period, 
and would eliminate some of the 
time conflict of meetings at night. 
Student committees would have more 
time during the day^ to meet»' and 
perhaps most impdrtant, it . would 
give more evenings for uninterrupted 
study. - 

' It has been -Suggested and approved 
that itttendance at the extia-dass 
misetings will be voluntary. f- 

The student committee on this 
project consisted of Merle Maxson.

Pennfjlvania. Miarch 26. 1987 

Here we find ourselves situated in 
the midst of March. We are surround- 
ed by the unpredictable, the unprece- 
oedented, the unaccountable, and 
even the tinusual. And om of the 
moat tin^auiBl specimens is ManaCteld's 
own "Mad Bomber/' (Only fhe names 
have been withheld to pziotect the 
guilty. Ha,) I guess t|ii^ purpose ot 
tnese harmless explosions is to prove 
that New York City has nothing on 
M.S.TC. Well, not much, anywayl 
New York City has walk-out strikes 
whereas Mansfield has sit-down 
strikes. Have you ever noticed the 
waiters . sitting arouiid the tabl«^ at 
breiUclast In the naemlnBT It must be 
some Union! 

How do you like the ideas of Final 
Examinations? I g^pss we : will all 
wish we , were .Teddy Nudler's before

Apparently several students have 
been influenced by the panels on 
Love, Courtship, and Marriage. For 
proof of this statement you might 
peek in on the couples in Second 
Floor Well. ... At FIVE MINUTES' 
TO TEN. (If you prefer to be in bed 
iby that late hOTir^- yott might cast 
a glance toward the Third Floor Ar- 
cade at any earlier, hour.) It seems 
that there are a few things that aren't 

given up for Lent.

P.S. Just to answer the ageH>ld oiMS^ 

tion of "Will February March?" -- 
I'd like to say, "No. but Af^rU May." 


Is the proposed amendment to the Constitution of the Stu- 
dent Government Association as accurate as it should be? Will it, 
if passed, tend to lower the calibre of students who will be future 
editors of your campUfl pul^catiaiis? As it TMil8» can ftiMlttits 
objectives ? 

Let us examine these objectives. The first is "to give a larg- 
er, more accurate representation of the Student Body." If , the 
amendment is passed, how much larger will this representation 
be? Simple arithmetic shows us that if we add four (rf-4) and 
subtract two .( — 2) we will compute an answer of two. (+2).iWill 
this ^fi^llcantlyL_$idai^fiP& the Coirais^f 

And what about the **more accurate" angle of this objective? 
If this amendment is passed, it will insure a position on the Coun- 
cil to one member from each of the four departments, BUT sir 
multaneously, it will eliminate two positions which have been 
formerly occupied by the editors of our two campus pubticatiof^s. 
Would we be insuring accuracy on one hand and eliminating it on

Warm ' weather at last? It certainly 
ia ho^Md t.iat the winter cold has pass- 
ed permanently and that we can all 
enjoy t;,e final stretch of another 
year. It is no chUd's taak to bring our- 
selves to concentrate on academics, 
whca the air ie ecnxlUeive to ao amy 
other pastimes. It tOcii'raiu^ TO 
age to bring up the subject of books, 
but. here's hoping that there are some 
Mansfieldians whose literary appetite 
remains unsatisfied despite the wea- 

^ On iiii agenda for Maivh are John 
P. Marquaad's STOPOVER' TOKYO 
ard Powell both bestsellers. 

STOPOVER TOKYO is an intrigu- 
ing adventure with very llt ^a d fPtti, 
It is easy redding and mi^y ^iwirowiiti 
the travel urge within those of lis lirho 
have a taste for advenUure. The story 
concerns a United l^ates special 
agent - - male, another United States 
special agent - - fennale, who wind 
their way through a series of Sher- 
loclc Holmes-ish episodes that ulti- 
mately result in the uncovering of 
two big men in a Communist strong- 
hold of the Far East. Mr. Moto, the 
fictional Japanese sleuth who has re- 
"Cently decline la popularly, returns 
to serve a few baftUng q;>edmens of 
deduction* whidi arts sei^lod in qual- 
ity only to'^ ^oii o£ the American 

Marquiand, who has written works 
of quality, falls below his usual in the 
minds of your writer. STOPOVER 
TOKYO seems to have little that 
many twanty^five— rent papw^acks 
don't have. Your writo- felt ^t J. P. 
was meeting a deadline and over- 
worked ^ ma imaginaUon while - his 
literary skill was being neglected. 
Conclusion: Save your money. 

Powell, with liis THE PHELADEL- 
PHIAN, strikes another note mtirf^. 
He relates the stoiy of an tesS^OOB 
PhUadelphia lad with only indirect 
connections with the society elite, who 
tateed itJmself along the ladder to- 
ward success lintil he, too, had his

Yes, THE FLASHLIGHT and CARONTAWAN are interest 
groups. But aren't they of interest Jo all of us? When we enrail 
as members of M.S.T.C., we autoniatically become "membelrs" of 
THE FLASHLIGHT and CARONTAWAN. We make the news; 
we live the year. They are our publications, our persoiial posses- 
sions. Are other interest groups repreamted on l^e Ck>uncil? At 
the present, they are not. However, if the two interest groups 
which represent each of us are deprived of their membership on 
the Council, what hope remains for other interest groups ever to 
Jb^ave Council representatives? Will ilUj^nating the iii«mbership 
of the two organizations-concerned assure us of . . a lucytri 
more accurate representation of the Student Body?" , 

Now let us analyze the second objective^''1» ingure represen- 
tation of each department on the Student Council." Freshman, 
sopbomofe, junior, senior — is any student eligible for this office? 
Next year's Council already contains at least one member from 
each department, but, there have been exceptions in past years. 
Although this objective is iddieed gonstructive, we must remem- 
ber, also, that THE FL^Ifl^IC^ ind the GARANTAWAN con- 
sist of dormiixnry students and day students alike, and of mon- 
bers from every class and every department. 

This amendment has good PQtep t ialiti e B , but are you satisfi- 
ed with it tui it staqds? vim y«a bil the to am<etid im

Father and Son 


By Jo Anne Bowen 
It isn't often that you find a father 
and son attending the same college 
at the same time. But that is happen- 
at HB^'C tbM year. Perhaps 
everyone has sean Buas Quclm m<i his 
^on uaipn tfaveUnf around In tiuto 
little red Messersmitt. 

The Carls come to Mansfield from 
Meyersborg, Jr'a., which is about 49 
miles from here and is near ttie place 
Mrs. Carls teaches the ...jKysosc 
Jointure School. Mrs. Carls is. also 
studykig, taking an extension course 
in Towanda. 

Possibly a few have wondered why 
Russ Carls is attending Mansfield 
as a frehman. In. his. younger years 
J^MT^Rttrm saleaman for Ifb^ and 
^fuPi^ Witu he developed rheu- 
mattan. After Swift and Company, 
Kuss worked as a detective on the 
Reading Railroad. He decided to 

take it easy for awhile: so he bought 
a. farm. Russ found that farming 
wasn't his field; so last May he sold 
his farm and in the fall began to 
look for other work. Even thoui^Hi he 
had a high school and some college 
education, Russ could not find work 
because everywhere he applied »he 
was told he was "too old". All of 
this disappointment was beginning 
to show, and when he was ofiered a 
job as. a janitor at WefStinghouse— 
well, that was the last straw! Russ 
decided that if he couldn't get a de- 
cent job he would go to college. And 
that he did! 

Rufis Carls is now enrolled as an 
elementary freshman, and his . son 
Ralph is a math-science nuMor in 
tile- secondary department. 

If anyone thinks he is getting too 
old or a job is becoming too tough, 
he should have a nice long chat 
with Russ Carls.

MSTC Adopts Semester Exams 

By Greorge R. Beyer 
Monday, May 20, final examina- 
tions for the second semester, 1956- 

1957, Will begin at Mansfield. Thus 
will be inaugurated on this campus 
an institution that has found a place 
at many colleges and universities 
throughout the country and. has 
i^oused considerable , discussion 
among both faculty members 'and 
students at Mansfield. 

Why has the college decided to 
adopt a regular system of semester 
exaxniivations? Dr. Harry W. Earl- 
ley, Dean, at Instruction^ has put it 
this way: '^llie primary reason for 
an examination period is to have the 
student think in terms of the coune 
as an integrated whole rather than 
considering only the final few units 
just prior to the termination of the 

It has been oni^basixed, however, 
that the final examination is definit- 
ely not to be ' considered the sole 
basis for determining a student's 
mark in any course. The continued 
importance for each student of reg- 
ular tests, day-to-day-xilasa-. partici-> 
pation, and individual projects will 
ndt be minimized. 

Classes far the second semester 
will run this year until noon on Sat- 
urday, May 18. The schedule for 
final examinations will commence 
the f<aiowing week, Monday, May 20, 
and will continue throu^ Friday, 
May 24. The examination for each 
course will run for two houM and 
will he held in one of the three reg- 
ular classroom buildings, the Arts 
Building, the Science Building, and 
the iSdycation Center. With very few 
excQpttcHOi, na iludeat WlU bf schad- 

"u}ed for more '#iah threa examina^ 
tions in any one day, and even, th^ 
numbec yrill be the exception i^ther 
than tiie rule. „^ . - 

One advantage of an examination ' 
period from the students' point of ' 
view is that, since there will be no re- 
gular classes to prepare f>r during 
this Lime, he will be able to devote his 
fuL attention to the examinations. 

The members of the faculty have al- 
ready discussed with their students 
t. e tentative S(^ddul«B lor ewjmina? 
tion^ in Uieir cUiases and liave r^paarl^ 
ed to the administ);«tion «ny coofUets 
between examlnaticms in their courses : 
and those in other courses that their 
students are taking. Such conflicts 
will be eliminated in the 
of the final schedule. 

This final schedule will be posted 
on the bulletin boards about one 
month before the examination period. 
Students will then know definitely 
several , weeks ahead of thne when 
their examinations .^re to take place. 

How did the prq^osal for final ex- 
aminations come to be adopted? 

It had been the opinion of several 
me.iibtTs of the faculty that an ex- 
amination period ought to be insti- 
tuted at Mansfield. For this reasa.i. 
Dean Earlley made recommendation 
to the Faculty Council thiat it con- 
sider the idea and then make recon^- 
noendations to the AdininistratiiriB 

In Uie meantime, President Mortfui 
aii^inted a curriculm committee, 
which was to investigate all matters 
relating to improvemeiit of instruction 
at Mansfield. The proposal ..for final 
examinations was to bie I^VOI pifti- 
cular emphasis. 

Because of this interest iioir in tsuaxL-^

At the March 14 meeting, sopho-

ination period, meetings of the four 
college departments were held, a* 
which the idea was discussed. The 
response received at the meeting was 
favoiiable, and it was decided that the 
curriculm committee, rather than the 
Faculty Council, would present a 
ccnrunehSajtfOQ to the Admlnis^ttve 
Council that final exainlnatloos for 
the semester be held this Itfay. 

As a result, the following motion 
was placed before the Administrative 
Council and was adopted; "That a 
final examination period for such 
courses as the curriculum commit- 
tee deemed proper wiU be , adminis- 
tered at the terininatipn of the pres-^ 
ent semester.^? ~ " 

In less than two months It will be 
possible to gauge the initial success 
of a proposal that has been increas- 
ingly discussed and increasingly ad- 
vocated at Mansfield duting the past 
months. Jt is reasonable to assume 
that, as a reanilt of experience^ dif- 
lieuiyes whio^-at~#tFSt ^n^y- b y e n-

ated and that the semester ex<|mina-

I replied. ,

Why, she asked. And I did not

Where did you get it, she asked. 

I made it from a coat hanger, I 
said. Nervously, I began to twirl the 
ends of my mustache. I twirled them

my em <cl«ped» jad Isaed^ me ,

You are dever^lhe said. My brow 
was sweating now. I wiped it with

sleeve back in my pocket, I rose. 

We must go, I said. 

Yes, she answered sadly, my

•CeUo^ I asked. 

What flavor, she inquired. I named 
them and she declined. Then we 
both conjugated, and finished with 
a minute of brisk parsing. 

Stepping into the night, we walk- 
ed toward the Sehie. On the river's^ 
edge. I swept her into niy arms. (I 
^eerrML a large brocnn with me at-

had enough. We had eadi other.

It is a siereotyped plot involving a 
problem, a decision, and a solutioci, 
but Powell adds warmth and a very 
human quality in his novel. 

Although Anthony; t^wr^ce Is 
more able ^than the avorage man, and 
even thouf^i his rise is far fiwn the . 
average real life situation, Powell 
brings the story down to earth with 
hiis delicate handling of characteri- 
zations and his easy flowing plot. 

In this day and age the limited sup- 
ply of story plots has been treated and 
retreated in almost every conceivable 
manner. The difference between qiwd- 
ity and the average among novels can 
no longer be made by an original plot; 
it mus»t be made by masterful des- 
cription, warmth of characterization, 
and strength of technique. THE PHIL- 
ADELFIOAN has the things which 
raise it above the commonplace. It is 
a truly moving treatment of an age- 
old story about man's struggle against 
fiocial barriers.

Varsity Scoring 

" 'The race for the scoring d«rby 
among the varsity cagera wasn't 
even doe this past season as Joe 
Witowski pulled far ahead of the 
pack. Joe's total of 263 points was 
nearly doutde that of his closest 
coinpetitor. The next four w»re tight- 
ly bunched, however, with runner-up 
Boifi Lee iHdy U points in front of 
tUM I^aee ibke Qan^te. iiar Han- 
sen's 133 was only two behind Mike- 
Joe Linkoski followed with 121. All 

the others 8core4^*' less than 100 

points, but ten other players managed 
to at least hit the scoring column. 

- Wi t owsk i also led in tt»e- points-

average. Panzer Lee had a 9.9 point 
average in 15 games. Gamble fol- 
lowed with a point average; Han-

Sp ofts eript 

By Bob Keenaa' 

The basketball season has been 
wrapped up ana put away for 
another year. It should be interest- 
ing at this time to look back .over 
the season and then take a peek in- 
to the future. The recent season was 
certainly not the worst in' MansjCictld 
hi{ptox3M>ut» then it wasn't the ' best 
either. A losing record never lobks 
good. But better things are in store 
the next few years if the potential 
is Kalized. 

All the mistakes and inconsisten- 
cies have been explained and then- 
remedies suggested by Coach Gib- 
son. Each player knows his limita- 
-iiQaC_AlldjAlO£k»3xi)^^ and is aware, 
of tho^e errors which need correct- 
ing. The two week practice sessicm 
held after the^g^^tor season helped 
some in this ittrii^ion. but much 
more work is required. ,„ 

After the post-season practice, the 
team shapes up 8omeiiipng;:Itice this: 
The center position belonAB to Gary 
Enderle-^only a complete relapse 
from his late-season form could 
keep him from this job. The coach 
has another prospect for the post 
position, a potential freshman from 
the Pittsburgh area. If neither Gary 
nor the hew man show well. Coach 
Gllwbn has indicated that he, may 
switch to speed instead of height. 

He has plenty of speed. Three men 
with about equal potential will bat- 
tle for the two back court spots. 
Bed Firestoue,' $mbb^, and 

Harold Btensen afford the competif 

tlon for these two positions. In the 
one forward or speed-center posi- 
tion, he has Al Zyga and Gib Moore. 
Both these men are tO)igh under the 
boards and both have good scoring 

Td round out th^ squad. Coach 
GilMon has a variety of tolent and 
top-notch potential. Players like Jon 
Peterson, Don Lccj, Paul Hvizdzak, 
and Vince Siracuse could make ANi' 
ball club when they're right. Lee is 
especially valuable because of his 
ability in every departmpent. He 
can shoot, dribble, pass, and rebound 
with equal adroitness.. The others 

departments— talthough Jon P^eterson 
shouldn't be. .He can do everything 
Lee can do but needs a little more 
confidence. Defensively, you can't 
beat mm but offensively he should 
shoot' more often. Jon has— the ^t>est 
jtunp shot en-ttie squad.: ~ 

Paul Hvizd2ak has shown, tremel^ 
dous ability, and^ has all the as&dis 
of a collegie-calibre player, in mbst 
of the games and many times in 
practice,^ Paul really did a job. Vince 
Syracuse* is probably the most under- 
rated player on the squad. He knows 
his way around on the basketball 
court end has- shown signs of coming 
into his own. ' t 

The 1958 Mountaineers, then, ap<^ 
pear to be well stocked in potential 
ability, and a readl seastHi ^ould be 
in ^re for next year.'

Managers Perform 
Behind The Scenes 

All season 'long the athletes : are 

cited for outstanding deeds, the 
coaches are congratulated on a job 
well done^ and the Suiiday quarter- 
backs relax after a gruelling after- 
noon s of second guessing. Little, if 
anything, is thoui^t of the guys be- 
hind the scenes— the^ guys who make 
all the necessary .preparations be- 
fore the game and then clean up the 
mess after evieryone else had gone. 
The student manager is the most 
overlooked and yet the ihdit neces- 
'Wl^ iMe<ie of property on any ath- 
letic team. 

'The activities of the student man- 
■-^iger are as varied as those of a mis- 
skmafy. He munt be the doctor,, ttie 
nurse, and the chaplain of the squad 

He must carry water and towels, 
nwke equipment repairs and carry 
injured jdayers off the field of action.

"Hie big guy finally made it Every- 
body knew that Gary Enderle had the 
potential - - and in the last few games 

of the seaso.i he proved it. After these 
tiemeuaous performances, the Flash- 
light U proud to make him Athlete of 
ihe Muiuh for February, 

In his tliird year of varsity com- 
petition, Gary got off to his usual 

■ lew sCart and left little hope for the 
futyre. He alwaj^ had a strong de. 
.511 e. to piay and a real lOve for the 
game. Bjt he always tried too hard; 
he could never seem to loosea up in 
a ball lamL'. He tried awfully hard to 
miiie gocd and has finally done it. 
Ths3 CcrLlaiid game was without a 
doubt the turning point of his career." 
Gaiy ALxS loose and full of hustle that 
nignt -- Willi that type of perform- 
ance ha could liave mide any ball 

In practice, Gary never takes a 
break. One of t.w bettei^ athletes as 
far 83 training is concerned, he never 
oit ks a training rule and concen- 
tratci on staying in top physical 
.vhaiHv When he is removed from a 
pi dct ce scrimmage, he immediately 
P-cks up a bill to practice shots or re- 
bLunds. He is always moving. And,, 
most jmporiant, he takes the game 
serious y. He realizes^ his mistakes and 
shortco.nings and worlcs very hard 
trying to overcome them. Gai^ ia his 
own most severe critic. 

In the. Cortland game, Gary was 
without question the best ball player 
on the court On both offense and de- 
fense, he was Mansfield's most lethal 
weapon. He hustled both boards in a 
manner not often seen on the local 
court. Time and again he would block 
an opposing shot or Jump, high in the 
air to gather in a rebound. His new 
jump shot worlced to i«rfection and 
hi^ foul shoothHl left litae to be de- 
sired. When Gary left the game on 
■fouls'late in the fourth period, the 
Mounts had a four point advantage. 
Needless to say, the final score might 
have been dtCfarenl wltli €tefy ta at 
the end. ^--^-^ 

The reniain ing games bore 0^1^ 
"new look" of Gary Enderle. While he-, 
never quite equalled his performance 
in the Cortland game>-hp none-the-lfeiw ^ 
p ayed terrific bell and was t^ out-' 
standing p^ormer In at least two o£^>' 
(he oth^ contests. His total offense 
can easily, be measured in points and 
aipists but his value on defense can 
o^ly be estimated. It is certain that 
his defensive ability is the best seen 
an-^und here in a long time. Now that 

■ e has come into his own, great things 
rra expected of Gahr next year - - his 
presence should definitely add the' 
neec'ed balanced aqmid; 

Besides his basketball interests, 
Gary Vi;as many varied campus activi- 
ties. He has been a member of the 
Men's Dorm Council for two consecu- . 
tiye years, a member of the "M" Club, | 
Sigma Zeta, and Art Club. His other ' 
sports activities include varsity base- 
ball and intra -mural bowling. Scho- 
iBsticBlly, Gary is shove average in 
h!s two major fields: mathematics and 
r-Ierice. Alwajrs popular and active, 
Gary Ehderle is certainly a credit to 
Mansfie'd and to Man^^eld athletics. 

past four years these guys have car- ' 
ried out all of the above mentioned 
chores in a fine manner. They have 
had assistance, to bej^sure, and their 
successors will be capable ifianagei^ ' 
in the coming years.

While rummaging through some old 
books I found a ten cent booklet p\A>- 
lished in 1896 for reading in railroad 
day coaches. This booklet, "Scraps of 
Wit and Wkrdom from the Crazy 
Patchwork of Reflection" seems equal- 
ly appropriate today. To justify the 
space I quote fnwn Carlyle "The man 
who cannot laugh is not only fit for 
treaso.i, stratagems, arid spoils, but 
his whole life is already a treason and 
a stratagem," and from Grenville, 
"Man is the oily creature endowed 
with the power of laughter." 

Quoted from "Scraps of Wit and 
Wisdom from' the Cjrazy Patchwork 
of Reflection" by E.J. Tlmmons and 
published in 1896 are some thoughts 
equally as entertaining today. 

A gossip a woman who can make 
five by putting two and two together. 

A woman . will jump at a conclusion 
almost as quick as she wiU jump at 
a mouse. 

Men sometimes think they under- 
stand women, but men are sometimes 
fools. - . 

The wonian who can look at a hole 
in a newspaper without wondering 
what was cut out is a freak. 

To please a man, get him to talk 
about himself; to please a womavi, get 
her to talk «J30ut' her. neighbors.

Hogging thr -limelight ltt —8ttid«rt 
government buaideas, an amenndment 
to Student Council membership was 
passed by the student body April 2, 
416 to 99. One representative from 
each of the four curricula will re- 
place mennbers from the FLASH- 

The proposal, appearing on the 
council agenda over two monttis ago, 
aroused many students to jump to 
the defense of their views toward the 
change. In some instances, discussion 
changed to heated argiunents. 

Two assemblies w«re topped off 
wlt-i discussion psriod^, tninging 
many questicms from tile student 
body. . 

It is doubtful that the source of the 
proposal can be traced down a single 
line, but talk of a need for constitu- 
tional revision was h; 
1955-1956 academic year. 

Probably more impoirtant than the 
background of the change is the fu- 
ture importiance the departments will 
have in council. Speculations of pos- 
sible increase of departmental mem- 
bership are known to exist, but the 
increase will depend, no doubt, upon 
■ the su-ccess of the new members. 

The change takes effect in May, the

In the hun^r-scurry, hustle-tbustle, 
Ji^teTTskelter ^roanitpr of this modem 

in th3 fr^ih, fragrant garlands af a~ 
youthfjl Spring, but arrayied in the 
soft, inkling lustre of a !»rolonged 
Winter. Instead of promoting um- 
brellas, raincoats, and daffodils, April 
advo<pated sleds, snowboots, and fur 
coats, During the first two weeks of 
April, we didn't see any little clouds 
that cried; we witnessed little clouds 
that cried white. April's extraordin- 
«ry precipitatioTi caused the "Tennis 
Ball" to be held in Jiie Student Cen- 
ter rather, than on The tennis' court. 
For a while, I thought the name of 
idg dance might be changed to the 
^"Tfenguin Hop." 

April recovered beautifully, pro- 
gressed rapidly, and vanished non- 
^alantly. Sherlock Holmes was sum- 
n\oned to South Ha'l, a^id within a 
, he. and' Dr.' Wat' 
son 'had revealed the identity of the 
"BCad Bomhiir." Or should I say M^d 
Bombiers ? Naturally fihe accused 
Were arri wc^pd be! ore Scotland Yard 
judges. The trial was interrupted by 
a Icud explosion. That's right - it was 
a bo-mb. The Mad Bonnber had struck 
egain. So, the detectives polished 
their magnifying glasses, adjusted 
their xiaps, ahd renewed their search. 
The outcome of this, trial is in File X 
(T<^ Secret Information) . jso I'll have 
»0 tell you the resufte o| another trial. 
This trial co^ iv'cted tin WtWtop who 
was the mother M three baby ink 
droplets. The poor little ink droplets 
cried and cried becaust; their mother 
was in Xhe "Fen" ' and they didn't 
know how long the "sentence" would 
■be. ' ' ' 

The two preceding tales illustrate 
Ihe conviction angle. Members of ^ the 
#.6.A. sell •sandwiches fbur' nights ^ 
each week in North Hall, and occa- 
Konally some food is "borrowed." The 
other day when I was in the k i t c hen , — 
I noticed the following sign on some . 
et their food : "Thou shalt not steal." 

Scattered among banquets, tennis 
games, pinochle games, jam sessions, 
and an occasional canoe trip, some of 
the students even managed to find 
time to w^ite term . papers, and to cal- 
~ml0e AO% EQ's, iQ'a, th's, etc. 

After this strenuous taxation of the

Joan Johnson, a former member of 
the present junior class, was married 
during Easter vacation. Nancy Reber, 
a freshman, is engaged to George 
Sc'-anzenbadh. The May Day attend- 
ants spent part of theil* vacation pur- 
c hasin g gowns, fin only four more 
days we'lL know who bought the 
w'.ite one.) 

The week after we returned from 
vacation, an exotic mist seemed to 
escapo from Aladdin's Lamp while 
fying carpets collided with station- 
ary silver stars. The Junior-Senior 
Ball, "Arabi-in Escapades," was cen- 
tered around ai Swami with a mystic 
erystal ball. T^ie atmoaiiAiere was «a-.

Be ": reports have been ttte major 

concei'n of this columnist during the 
past :'?ar, but tliis month a different 
-^note it being struck. Your writer in. 
his r^id'ng, stumbled across an N.E.A. 
survey, the result of which should in- 
terest the Mansfield populus. "Riis 
survey, which takes a look into the 
economic, social and professional life 
of the American teacher, was pub- 

liJ-.ed on the second of April and is ' 

entitled 'The Status of the American 
Sw heel Teacher." 

The typical man teacher is 35.5 

TC3rs oidrn arried, and has^^nii^isnr"^ 
or two (^dren. Most men toachttrs 
are married - 82.7 i^rceiit. He holds 
a bachelors degree, and a Masters de- t 
gr.:e or higher is held by 42 percent 
of the male te,achers. 

Thg male teacher's .<?alary from 
tea- ing is $4374. This figure repre- 
sents 86 percent of his total income. 
The average male teacher works at 
the secondary level, has 129 pupils in 
his classes, and devotes 11.3 houn a"' " 
week to extra-currici^ar d utiaa .- 

The typical women teacher is 10 
years older than her male counter- 
part, is married, holds a bachelors 
degree, and has beenn teaering about 
15 years. She teaches in an elemen- 
tary g-ade, has one child of her own, an annual salary of $3932, and 
devotes about 9.7 hours weekly to ex- 
tf3 dutfes. 

Teachers,, as a group, represent a 
highly >, r« ^g)OnBibl e c i vic and p olitiod 
,-fopce. About 86 percent 6t all teach- 
ers voted in the last election. This is 
one third higher than the natianal 
avert'ge in the 1952 election. Progress 
is being made toWard a stable pro- 
fession, though shifts and lack of con- 
tinuity are still found. Dramatic sal- 
ary advancements are taking place 
continually, and teaching is beginning 
to compete with industry as a calling 
for the young people of today. 

On}y enough fac ts and figures have 
been-mentionearto give" the rekdors a 
fragmentary insight into this recent 
survey. If anyone happens to be< 'in- 
terested in the entire survey, he maiy 
obta'n' the results by writing to Roy

iPor seniors the remaining period of time at Mansfield is 
filled with "lasts" not firsts. As each day passes, the semors 
life ebbs. He has either attended his last banquet or his ast 
meeeting. And now he has just returned from his last 
Easter vacation. Socn he will take his last exam, kiss his girl 
goodnight under the tree for the last time, and sign out for 
good. ■■ ^ " . ■ . V " T ' " 

The seniors have been expressing their elatj^n that the Q^-^^ C4.,»l^« 
long pull is at last nearly over. However as the 26th of May ap- OprinO OtyieS 
prciches, there are traces of nostalgia felt by all. A chapter of ^ ^ V ^ 
life is dosingr-^me that, despite its annoyances and hardships, 
has been enjoyable. Good friends have be^ made, valu^le les- 
sons learned, and a profession begun. 

But it is not a final chapter. Graduation should be consid - 
ered not as an ending but as a beginniing— the beginning of a 
new chapter, an exciting chapter, one that holds many thmgs 
in store. • 

For me, the editor, this is a last— my last issue of THE 
FLASHLIGHT. There have been trying times and rewarding 
times. I would like to thank my staff, the advisors, and all who 
have cooperated in getting each issue out on time. 

C(die SuUiviKn 

Good luck to next year's staff.

Spring had a \iatd time getting 
firmly established this year, but the 
waim weather^ -finally here to stay- 
we hope. 

Those big suitcases most of the girls 
toolc l.ocne at - Easter vacation were 
packed full of wool skirts, sweaters, 
and other cold weather clothing. 
Thtve suitcases were brought back to 
twiicji alter vacation crammed with 
i-pii-^g and summer fashions. It is 
such a pleasant change to see the 
pretty pinlcs, yellows, gxeoB aai 
other paMtA, ecdocid draasui wtuni Iba 
gU'ls gather In llie well for 6iaame^ ifi . 
the evening. Sleevde^ blouses and 
full cotton skirts With many can-can 
peLticoats are the standard dress for 
clasj and campus wear. Ivy league 
fas'iions are still very popular. Ber- 
muda shorts are first choice for ^ort 
ahd xelaxatiim fuMpsii. 

Now that the ban is off sunbathing 
oh t' e third floor arcade of North 
Hall that place wiU resemble a beach. 
Whenever a few minutea may tie 
spared th^ will be spent soa|cing in 
the. stin. Besult will be: a nice coat of 
isn or in some cases a lobster colored 
skin. Tanned legs are a good dis- 
guise for nylon stockings and there is 
ho worry about uneven seams or run- 
ners in the siockings. 

M Club jackets have been put in 
moth balls and have been replaced by 
sweaters. Khakis and sport shirts are 
the fasdiions for the majority of the 
men oq campus. Jvy league influentbe 
.is strong here also. The fellows ac- 
quire their 'sun "tan on th^ tennis 
court, t^^aseball diamond, or up by the 

" Any lesson or explanation of fonn 
and function of government must 
consider the social order in which it 
operates. The operation and proce- 
dure of our government today, be- 
cause of the many additional func- 
tions that have been imposed upon it, 
have to be interpreted in terms of aT 
technological society, differing vastly 
from that in which it was created. 

New economic and technological 
areas produce new ' political frontiers. 
"Revolutionary Changes" have had a 
profound effect, not only on our 
economy, but on all the institutions 
and practices of our government. This 
technological revolution, which is 
nothing more than a contemporary 
phase of the . Industrial Revolution,* 
has increased the importance of the, 
goverhmehrs role as a stabilizer of 
our society. The aolhtion many 
modern social problems depends oh 
this stabilization. 

The Philosophical tenets and »Rro- 
cesses of political democracy must be 
geared to conditions wrought by the 
Twentieth Century. 

I wUl not endeavor an explanation 
of the Post World War .1 depression, 
butf^ only, siter^e economic an«i social 
problems it invoked. These problems 
wgre beyond . the ability of any in- 
mvidual state to solve.' Under these 
circumstances, it was expedient for 
tht Federal Government to plan vast 
programs for immediate relief and 
future economic security : The "New 

Government experience with nat- 
tional planning of economic and soc- 
ial reforms has revealed that while 
the average, American is void or igno- 
rant of gQvamment, ^ he realizes he 
holds its soyereignt^. The XTnited 
States is then ' uiiique, for we have 
realized the benefits Of social and 

economic planning without any. en- 
fringement or surrendering of 'Sover- 


This kid Elvis has been bandied 
around uhtir hb ron^Ts~"sure which- 
end is up ! However, some good news 
affords itself. Elvis Beware! for the 
Presley Panic is almost over. An ''I 
:ove Ludwig" club, complete with 
buttons has been launched at Yale 
University. F^e^mian Bdmuftd Gold-

an awful lot of "I love Ludwig" but- 
tons - - would you aay ? ■ — 

Peiiiaps you feel that you're not 

with ii. - "h'p"' as they say. That is, 

W:.o is Ludwig ? Nobody really. Just 

one of Germany's V.i.P.'s in Tin Pan 
Alley back around 1800 A.D. 

An investment of one hundred dol- 
lars is no ^nali item when you con- 
sider, the return on three * thou$and 
buttons being sold for a quarter 
apiece. You've guessed it, their aim 
is to spread the movement through- 
out the good old U.S.; I might add 
that we*!^ ready at ManatRld. ' - 

The purpose of this endeavor is 
twofold: 1. to spread and. propagate 
tht' name of Beethoven, and 2. to 
make Mvia shave pff .his side burns, 
, buy a hearing aid, tune his guitar, or 
do "something." 
See you in chiirch. 


• How many times , , have you been 
told, "You're Ih college now; so act 
like an adult !" It's my estimation 
tljLat this phrase is i>eing repeated ver- 
batim or' in a reasonaible facrimile all 
over our campus. So now in the eyes 
of instructors and generally-con- 
sidered superiors we are equal in 
social standing, or we are adults. 
Are We i ^ • 

At the age qf our beginning teens 
we Wcome "adolescents." From here 
to adulthood we are considered adults 
physically and^ children mentally. 

Our growth is slow, to be sure, so I 
don't expect to become an adult over- 
night. On the other hand I don't wish 
to be «x>nsidered an adolescent either. 
Some people seem to have different 
ideas as to the time an individual 
reaches hiaturity. College instructors; 
and administrators seem to think the 
minute we step within these "hallow- 
ed halls" " we are auddeply adults

The State seems to think we be- 
come adults on our sixteenth birthday, 
for suddenly we are allowed to han- 
dle a ton and a half 6f lethal sted and 
given a driver's , licenses I 

The insurance companies really 
play it safe. They contend that we 
aren't adults until twenty-five years 
have flown by, and until then they 
charge extreme fees for auto insur- 
ance to anyone )Of said age; ' 

Our state nys we are not adults un- 
til twenty-one years' of age, and it 
won't permit us to vote until then, 
but the government says we are 

adults at eighteen, and so off to war. 

Mores dictate that twenty-one is 
the earlieM limit for marital stn>s. 

What you? What mm I? Our ac- 
tions border on the ridictdous some- 
times and people say, "Act your age!" 
How are people of our age supposed 
to act ? Maybe we are acting like ado- 
lescents and then again, maybe we're 
acting like adults. If so, then let's 
look and see if Wg are being, treated 
like that which we are suppOMd to 
be. What do you think? 


BCanafleld, Pemuylvanla, March 26, 1957 




ED. NOTE: "Hils column ia written 
with humblest apologies to Miss 
AUe^ ' and Ring Lardner whose 
style even he wouldn't recognize. ' 

Joe Sorry wae^ a aol^le sporter who 
played game8_^ f or the Zanesfield 
Mountain Climbers. Now Joe didn't 
have to much energy nor to many 
marbles upstairs. But Joe was tough 
—boy was he tough. And he was the 
world's greatesf^sport— why Joe has 
been heard of to stand upside down 
on his thumb tips amLjudgg^f* his 
ears at the same time. 

Mr. Sorry (as some of the upper ~ 
crust calls him now and then) don't 
pay no heed to such things as regu- 
lar training rules. Thems for tliem 
screwy twerpg what goes to the O- 
lympics. Zansfield's noblest sporter 
sports on ^eer , guts. And spnie of 
them other sporters what play 
against Joe didn't seem t<uvmder- 
stand that Joe is tough. Th^ ko^pg 
pushing him all over the place like 
he WM a mXy. 

By Bob KeNiMi 

nerve endings of his is cooled only 
by them joy sticks what Joe lUces 
to ,twte but not the filter kind. Joo's 
re adi n ess for the big one is com- 
plete after he hits the sack lor a 
couple hours; he don't need to much 
,sleep cause he is tou£jh. 

When the b^ one starb, Joe says 
he will win oiuse he's tough and 
rough and ready, Now Joe don't 
like to make' no excuses for the 
century waxing job he took during 
the big one and he. don't have to 
because everybody knows he was 
robbed and could not possible lost 
except the cards was stacked against 
lilm and them other sporters cheat- 
ed and- the umps "was crooked and 
he was In shape and he is tough and 
the world's greatest sporter. 

Now you might think tliat be- 
cause Joe Sorry don't win no sport- ^ 
ing ^mes that Joe is not no g <od. 
Well this is a good-out lie. Joe Sor- 
ry ia a lot better sporter than tliem 
other guys but them ones don't 
sport fair and them crooked capital- 
istic officials are klways against 
Joe. He don't like^ to make excuses 
. but he wm ' tell you the fact^ial 
reasons why them other sporters 
always beat him. 

— In between his sporting, Sorry 
figures he could might learn some 

.^social culture and refinervment. 
likes books and that stuff especially 
if ther?;s pictures etc. So Joe takes 
' up a few Uamii)g courses and fig- 
ures to knock them out in jig time 
because he ia also smart aloi:fj with 
he is tough. He already knows .^U 
about reading and writing so he's 

- half-beat already. The only thing 
that worries Joe is . the corollary be- 

•tween Adam and Eve and the birds' 
and the bee& 

Now thejre is nothing that Joe 
■« Sorry can't do. With all his learning 
^' and his sporting abilities, he fiijureg 
that he's a pretty important guy 
• around Zansfield. Joe observes from 
-time to time. And he is now obser- 
ving some of these uiuportlng jerks 
nuiking out witii some of the head 
around his Mountahi Clhnbing terri- 
tory. At first he figures this is just, 
sissy stuff and ignores his observa- 
tions but soon some chick gives Joe 
the old eye balls, 

As I said before, Joe is tough. He 
. never gets licked by nobody unless 
he is stacked up against before iie 
starts sporting. But somehow he 
don'tjtefil so tough when his chick 
"is around. She kinds melts his guts 
hl^ of course Joe would never say 
ihat to nobody ap he acts tough to 
the chick when his sporter. budges 
, ar^ watching. 

Now all this culture and those 
chicks is fine for Joe Sorry but his 
main thing of being is to sport for 
-the Zanafield Mountain Climbers. 
Week after month he is sporting and 
learning to sport better. P'mally 
comes the time for the big game of 
the year for the Mt. Climbers, Nat- 
urally Joe is really up for this one 
and he tries to -forget ttifem other 
humiliationa which were caused by 
dopey and crooked umps. Especially 
when Joe played outside Zansfield 
was the umps lousy. His inner spir- 
its tells him to forget those past 99 
clobber jobs he got from them visit- 
ing sporters. Joe Sorry is still tough 
and he's really about to show it in 
this big onie, ; 

Any qwrter of any type knows he 
gotta get ready for the big one. 
Now Joe Sorry is not like any old 
sporter, he's got his own way ol get- 
ting ready and it mua|t ebe a good 
way cause Joe is tough and would 
win all the time if it wasn't for 
thein^robbers. And for this big one 
Joe'a own way of gettii^ i:eadv is 
SOlhg to be hit hard at especially. 
The first and most important thing 
in Joe's ready way is the road work. 
He must always go down the ^road 
especially the night before this big 
one. So aa not to choke up during 
his sporting, Joe has to collect his 
nerves in a cool bundle and keep 
loose hjft muscles. iUad. them excited 

Mounties Lose Opener 
To Lycos In Squeaker 

Th6 Mansfield Teachors dropped a 
dosis '9-8 decision to Lycoming Col- 
lege in Mansfield's baseball inaugu- 
ral last Wednesday ...frft^^oon. at 
' Williamsport The Mounts held a 6-0 
advantage, going into the fifth inni:ig 
as timely hits and Hal Hacket*'s su- 
perb pitching predominated. The 87 
degrcr? heat tired big Hal, however, 
and the Lyco's pfot to him^ for five 
runs in the fifth. 
„_ Rich Warters came on to rietire the 
side in the fifth but was inn^ective 
in thfe sixth wh«i t^ycomimg toiiched 
him for four runs on S hits. These 
hits included a a75 foot home run and 
■a booming double to left-center field 
Hurst Mitten finished the inning and 
the game doing a tremendous job in 
allowing no runs aM no hits in 2 2/3 
innings. ' ' ' 

Mansfield scored in five of the nine 
inTiings with a combination of walks, 
hits, and errors. The Mounts accumu- 
lated 7 hits, aU singles, drew 13 walks, 
and werie aided by 3 Lyocmilng errors, 
Al Zyga reached base' saffely 5 times, 
mis waDcea ttorec" times while 
Bill Farrell and Bill Dewey eadi got 

,Lycoming bunched all of its runs 
into two big innings, gathering five 
in the fifth and four more in the sixth. 
They sent ten men to the plate in th? 
fifth when Yeger, Bowen, and Kaluza 
got solid base knocks at timely in- 
tervals. In the sixth, 9 more Lycos 
batted as they hanunered Warters for 
three solid s^ots that included Bow- 
en's long horlier and Sugrrue's two 
bagger. A- walk and two Mansfield 
errors helped in this four run rally.

When the Mountaineer baseball team 
opens its home schedule tomorrow, 
the probable starting hurler will be 
Rich Warters. Rich was Mansfield's 
only winning pitcher last season as 
Ke finished , with a 2-1 won-lost re- 
cord. Thus =far this season he has 
looked sharp and, after his weight is 
back down to normal, should be 
ready for another 8ucc«mcCu1 yi^ar. 


The picnic of the year— girls— all 
musrt plan to come. Hope for fair 
weather, but in case it Is useless, the 
picnic will still be held in the gym 
Kim Wilson, head chairman^ set-up 
the' picnic cqngpiittees. ' Planning &e 
program are Araia Carlson . and Sara 
Landis; the aU important food com- 
mittee are Joanne Sharpless and 
Dolly Rohland; initiation plans are 
dug up by Mary Kay Welch and 
and Joanette Albe..;. the lucky 
clean-up committee is Mary Sum- 
mers and Peg Cowperthait Other 
girls may have been asked to help. 

Forty girls f tried out for the May 
pdlef dance; twenty girls were select- 
ed. This is as much an honor to a 
frosh as it is to the seniors on the 
May Court. Congratulations to the 
dancers, to the court, and to the 
qUeen-r-whoevei^ sSMT-msiy^ be! 


The badminton tournament will 
soon begin. Girls, watch the W.A.A. 
bulletin board on third floor . in

frosh; sophbmot^s, ' sophs, and re- 
maining upperclassmen, respectively, 
will be posted that very day. Girls 
will be asked to report to the gym 
at a certain time, then only will they 
be able to play. The champs of each 
division will play ieadt eiher for a 
school champ. / 

"inie turn-out for the stable tennis 
tournament was record breaking on 
the part of the underclassmen. The 
winners of each of nihe groups will , 
go into a playoff. 

Spring tennis has started with 
tweiUjr-two girls comftetinfr The 

The new tennis court certainly is 
being put to the grinlstoqe! It Islit- 
tle less than a fight to have Use of 
it— and then there is a waiting line 
hurrying you off, good or bad weath- 
er. At least, it is well appreciated 
and it is good to see so many Inter- 
ested. , 
matches are scheduled when the 
weather permits and when classes 
don't collide. 

The bowling tournament is -coni- 
plete, but at the time of the" write- 
up one usms remained — the crucial

Sharpless' ' team was declared 
champs after defeating Umbenhauer.

for this season.

Standing at the century mark in the history of Mansfield 
Stat^' Teachers College, we look back over a ^Pan^of^one hundr^ 
years. "We see the lofty ideals of the institution's leaders, stretch- 
ng o^er the course of the century. We see the devoted labor that 
has been carried on in the pursuit of those ideals And see the 
changes, the growth, the progress in one hundred years tbat 
have been realized only as the result <>^ this labor rn^-„,„ 

Out of these things, has come the Mansfield of l«f • J^JfJ ^ 
college— an integral part of a system of fourteen state teacheis 
CO el^posses^ng a large faculty and a bandsome.campus^aiid 
experieAcing a steadily rising enrollment-is possible because 
of what one hundred years have made it. n^^^^ 

Yet, there is more to the story of Mansfield than this. There 

^^ wTtuTO^Mid fece this future. Before us lies a scene of great 
promise Tnd challenge, not only for Mansfield but for the whole 
of education. We see a continuously growing need for fir^SS 
education on the part of an ever greater number of Pe^J^We 
pee a tremendous increase in the demand for teachers— wid 
with it an elevation in their professional status and the ex- 
pectancy that that rise in status wiU be, f uUy justified by th^ 
quality of their work. ^ , ^ i. " 

Here it is that we see the future role of the teachers colleges-, 
and of Mansfield itseU. It will be up to these mstil^utions, m 
:k««e part, to prepare those who will be so badly needed to 
educate the rising numbers of the succeedjig generations. Thus 
will be a role callng for imagination, for vigor, leadership. 
If it is sucoessfully carried out, the teachers colleges of our 
country will assume a position of unique prestige such as tney 
have not yet known. i? r 

'For Mansfield— for all the teachers colleges— the future 
holds out both opportunity and responsibUity. How these are 
met will depend, in great measure, on the support that will De 
ffiven by all those in the teaching profession— including those 
who are now students at Mansfield State Teachers College m 
this year of 1957. 

By J.C. noane, '68 
Priaotpal of -Mansfield State 
Normal School, 1880 
iUamber of the Faculty of MMi|i- 
field Stat* Normal School. 1819-1881 

This article originally appeared in 
The Mansfield Normal Quarterly of 
July, 1905. References to "the pre- 
sent,' uj^!m in editor'a notei. pertain 

to 1j05. 

Previous to 1874, the Mansneld Nor- 
mal School presented an appearance 
o-uite diflerent from that with which 
we are familiar. The entire School 
. was domiciled in one building, now 
known as South Kail, tho' it has been 
enlarged and Improved to 'su^ an ex- 
tent that an observer- of that time 
would hardly recognize it (This build- 
ing was torn down in 1950. -Ed.). 
The evergreen trees standiTig on the 
«dge of the terrace were not more 
than ten or twelve feet high, and the 
space now occupied by Alunrmi Hall, 
North Hall, and the campus in front 
was bare of trees and buildings. 

Some refeareiice to the arrangement 
of rooms may be of interest. The din- 
ing room and kitchen were upon the 
first floor, in the space now occupied 
by t'.e librr;''y and reading room. 
"There were also three or four class- 
rooms on this floor; and in the north 
, end of the building, two or three 
small rooms in which were a rudi- 
mentjiry library, a cabinet of geologi- 
cal specimens, and som« apputetus. 
Oa thf second floor weYe dassrooqjs. 
tbe chapeh-toe prkieipid^^poom and a 
few student's roixns. liie third and 
fourth, floors were occupied by stu- 
dents. The building was divided trans- 
versely— Hhe ladies occupying the 
south part, the gentlemen the north 
part. Under the skylights, were the 
dormitories; and, as the rooms had no 
doors, all opened into a large central 
haili It may easily be' believed, that 
on the -gentlemen's side (rf 'the houae, 
at least, seizes (Mt pemiciouB activity 
were not of Infrequent occurence. 

A rudfi wooden building, partially 
equipped, occupied the site of the 
present gymnasium (or Student Cen- 
ter, aa it is known today.Ed.). T!ie 
huge -weigtkU, and the aferenuous 
character ut the various devicM for 
testing muscular power, seemed to 
suggest fitness for the development 
of a race of born Titans, rather than 
the systematic phy^cal training of 
ordinary mortals.

Tlie halls were heated by meant of 

large coal stoves; the students' rooms 
were supplied with small wood stov- 
es: and all were lighted by kerosene 
lamps. The furniture and general 
equipment of the building were rude 
and scanty "as compared with those 
ot the present-day. 

Water for cooking, etc., was pump- 
ed from a deep well situated just 
b ck of the building— at first, by a 
hot air engine, and later, by means 
,of a windmill. 

Much attention was given by stu- 
dents and teachers to beautifying the 
school grounds' by planting trees; 
and it was a custom, observed by all 
Of the^ early classes, to plant a class 
tree witii elaborate ceremonies con->. 
sisting of orations^ son^ and prophe- 

Many of the early teachers planted 
individual trees which they wished 
to be a memorial of their connection 
with the School; and in the spring 
of 1875 several members of the Fac- 
ulty joined in plac^ tw«nty-livo 
tre&t in front of what was toen 
known as the "New B«fldlng.« now 
as North Hall. A few of these survive, 
the rest having been sacrificed ^ 
the exigencies Of buU«Hi;gB, terracei^ 
and^alki^. t. 

It was for many years a custom to 
hold chapel exercises both mornihg 
and evening, at which times interest- 
ing topics of the day were discussed 
by some member of the Faculty, or 
by students appointed for that duty. 
At one time the "morning lectures^' 
by the members of the Senior ; class 
were a very attractive feature, even 
to persona not members of the 
School. , -7 

' For several years, B^'cwfae of free 
lectures was maintained for the 
benefit of students, the list of lec- 
tures containing such names as Rev. 
Thomas K. Beecher, Hon. H. W. Wil- 
liams, Dr. A. W. Cowles, President 
of EUmira .CoUege, Dr. T. S. UpDe* 
Graff, Prof.'D. B., Ford, of Elmira 
College, Dr. S. O. Gleason, Dr. John 
H. French, Dr. E. P. Allen, and 
many others, representing an excep- 
tionally talented class. If a sugges- 
tioin from a layman is permissible, 
this custom might be revived with 
greaf profit to all concerned. 

The students of the Normal before 
and during the seventies were, as a 

class, older than thbse of the present 
time. Many were experienced teach- 
ers who came to the Normal to tm- \ 
prove their professional equipment ♦ 
They were earnest, energetic, faith- 
ful; and many of them fill positions 
of which they may justly be proud. 

The elementary course of the per- 
iod was, in scope, murii like that 
^^hMi p r eceded the^^-ipifwgat three 
yeard* coursed It was stronger in 
mathmatics, and perhaps in some-^ 
other respects; but did not include 
Latin. The State Board Examinations 
were all oral; and candidates for 
graduation were required to pass an 
examination on the entire course at 
one time. This may seem.iumecessar- 
ily laborious and severe to students 
of the present day; but it ^atv^^least 
had the merit of developing- thor- 
ough, self-reliant scholars. 

The old time commencement was 
a very different affair from the 
present one. It was originally held in 
the School Chapel, later in the Meth- 
o^t Canurch. and twice at least in

Opened a century ago as a Seminary, Mansfield was Operated as a Normal School for ov^' ili^-^ 
years. Today, offering courses in the Elementary and Secondary Departments and in the speclali^%elds- ™- 
of Music and Home Economics, Mansfield is one of fourteen State Teachers Colleges in Pennsylvania. 

NORTH HALL. This five-and-one- half-story structure is the largest and 

most important building on the Mansfield campus. The women's dormitory 
buildijng for over sixty years, North Hall houses also the administrativj 
offices, dining room, kitchen, bakery, College Library, reception room, day 
Btudents? room, and storage facilities. The sduthern portion of the building 
stands on the site of the original women's dormitory, built in 1874. The north 
wing and cehtriA section of tSie prasent Ndrfh tbU were erected between 
1891 and 1894, while the sbufh wing 'was built in 1908. 

^tRAJSOrSm MM^ IRie college auditorium, witii a seating capacity of 1,250, 
occupies the major . portion ot this impeding building. During the college 
ij^ear, Straughn Hall is the center for assembliies, concerts, plays, programs 
of entertainment, movies, and numerous n>eeling'-j. Every spring, the annual 
Commencement exercises, Baccalaureate services, Alumni meeting, and 
other Commencement activities are held here. Ground was broken for this 
structure in 1929, and it was dedkated in October,. 1930. On December 24 of 
that year, the building was named "Straufhn HaU" in honor M Prealdent 
William R. i^^ranghn. ' —

Mansfield State Teachers College 
has a campus of sixty-two acres, a 
faculty of seventy-five, an increasing 
enrollment that stands at the mo- 
ment around 750, and a detailed pro- 
gram for future ejfpansion. Mansfield 
is on the accredited list of ba*h ths 
American Association of Colleges for 
Teacher Education and ttxe Middle 
Siaies Association of Collies and 
Secondary Schools. • "r^. 

It was in the' year 1854 thut Joseph 
S. Hoard first proposed that an in- 
stitution of higher learning be located 
in Mansfield. This idea soon won 

support, and plans were made for the 
wnent of the M a na ffat^

— Atl^ -stttoents at th e N o rmal scho o l 

cal Seminary, to '^b^ under the au 
pices of the East Genesee Conference 
of the Methodist Church. The school 
was not to be sectarian, however. Its 
purpose was to provide a general edu- 
cation for inhabitants of the area. 

On January 7, 1857, the Mansfield 
Clasirieal Semihary was opened. How- 
ever, on April 22, Portly after the 
/beginning ,ctf ^ th|^ ja^ad^^erm. the 
building was adiu^ecT^y arc. 

The next five years were the dark 
years of Mansfield's history, but they 
were inspiring years, . too. The origi- 
nal building was gone and outside 
help was not available, and so the 
new building 'was erected through 
local labor. 

Finally, in the fall of 1862, the 
Si^noinary op«ned its regular term 
in "e finished structure. The institu- 
tion was not long to remain a sem- 
iary, however. On December 12, 
1862, it . became the State Nawnal 
School of the Fifth District, 

Mansfield had now acquired the 
status of a ^ tocher preparation in- 
stitution. The- school was still shaky 
at first, but Prof. P. A. Allen, who 
came to Mansfield in 1864, placed it 
on a firm foundation. 

In those days, the majority of the 

the Elementary Course. Graduates 

in this course received their diplo- 
mas with the title "Bachelor of the 

All students at the Normay Schoos, 
even in that early day, were requir- 
ed to do practice teaching in the 
Iviodel Schix}! tor as long as was 
necess^jcy in order to be graduated. 

During this time, students were re- 
quirea lo lane ttie State Board Ex- 
aminations: In these oral examina- 
tions^ it was neceuary to recite on 
% ^tii)lfr course at otie^tijne. — .^^^ — _ — 
Th» Music Deparl^nent at Jilans- 
field dates back to the first years ot 
the Normal School. About 1872, a 
o^ate iNormai Musicil ,Aoedemgr was 
set up. 

In 1887, Hamlin E. Cogswell be-' 
came Director of Music. A four-yeai 
music course was given on the plan 
of the leading conservato riss of 
America' and' Europe; In~adiilttcni, ^ 
two-year course was giv«a ia pub- 
lic school music. 

The Art Department was also 
prominent a»>und the turn of the 
coatuzy^ " 

In the fall of 1902, new three-year 
courses of study were adopted at 

Mansfield State Noi^mal School, re-< 
Tplaclng the old two-year courses. 
The new courses had been worked 
out at a meeting of the normal 
school principals in Harrisburg. 

The Domestic Science course, 
which was the forerunner of today's 
'Home Economics 'Department, was 
instituted about 1913. 

With the completion of the new 
Model School building in 1914, the 
Model Scliool absorbed the other 
public school in Mansfield that had 
been operating independentsy. of tiie 
Normal School. Hie Model School 

in the area. 

Mansfield, although a state normal 
school for nearly sixty years, had 
long been under the ownendiip of 
stodcholdersr— In 1920, however, the 
Normal School was ' brought ^ 
under state control. 

It was about this time that the 
Home Economics Department took its 
present name and the Home Ifonage- 
meni Cottage wa^ purchased. 

The Junior High School, as such, 
1927, the school moved into the 
large building that it occupies today. 

In 1921, Mrs. Grace Steadman, 
head of the Music Department,^ or- 

gaaiz ed a new three-year music« 
curriculum. „ - , • 

In June, 1926, the State Council of 

Education passed a resolution au- 
thorizing the State Normal School in 
Mansfield to confer tiie degree of , 
Bachelor of Science and to give 

four-year courses. 

The next year, on. May 13, 1927, 
the name of the school was changed 
to "State Teachers Cx^llegv, Mbxis<^^ 
field, Pexgaeylyanla". Mandic^d was 
the first institution in ^e state to 
be so designated. The work of the 
college was now divided into the^ 
lour principal departments: elemen- 
tary, seoondaoTj hfxmt ee^MM^^, 
and music. 

During the 1930% teaching certifi- ' 
cates could be obtained on the cdm- 
5>'etioa of two years of college work. 
This, was eliminated in 1940, however. 

The curricula of IVIansfield and the 
other teachers 'tKdli^ies are constantly 
evaluated and ijhproVed as b result of 
study conducted by the Board of 
Presidents of the Pecu^v«nia State 
Teadiers Colleges. — 

It is hoped that, in the not too dis-. 
tant future. Mansfield State Teachers 
Corege will be able to give graduate ' 
work in the field of educatioou

college life: the voices of students, 
footfalls on the sidewalk, th© sound of 
cars driving past. - Yet, Alumni Hall, 
with so much history behind it, is to-

is, except possibly for workmen mov--

tens Qlos^y enough and long enough, 
he may begin to hear, echoi:ng 
through the halls and corridors,

year before. Old pictures oi the per-

stands today. 

On Wednesday, July 14, 1875, the 
A'umni Association of Mansfield State 
Normal School held its seventh annual 
reunion. One major feature of the. 
event was the unfolding of a plan, by 
a committee consisting of J. C. Ddane, 

' Tj«,„orri Stella Young, and Faimie Green, "for 

1^1 • .S^^^ -ihe Wctioh of a third major buUding 

on the campus. Its name would be

in the first quiarter of the century.

cal address that would- become fam- 
ous, the self-conscious voice of a 
young lady giving her recitation dur--

playing for the entertainment of the 
Athenaean Society, and then silence- 
except for the sound of workmen 
hauling something out. 
- This student stands there beside 
that half-open doop for anotiier mo- 
ment and wonders about Wtiat he- has 
heard. Then, he turns and walks down 
the steps leading toward North Hall. 
[Suddenly, the qUiet of the morning is 
broken by the powerful sound of the 
tower clock, striking the hour of 
eleven — the tower clock of Alumni 
Hall. This is not merely an echo from 
ttie past. That great bell is ringing 
now, on this , day in tiie ^ring of 1957. 

n - 

The history of Alumni Hall is ap- 
proaching its end. In a few months, 
the building will be torn down to 
malce way fCr a new Library and Ad- 
ministration Building. 

Thierh are buildings, even iff this 
town, that are older than Alumni 
Hall. Til ere are indeed few, however, 
that liave led as full or as rich a life 
as has Alumni Hall. There are few 
things in this area that have become 
eo beloved by young and old over the 
years as has this building, with its 
famed tower clock. And between 1886 
and 1927. probably no other building 
was the setting for so much of the 
history of ttiis institution as was 
Alumni Hall. ' 

An Early Plan 

To trace the story of this building 
to its beginning, one almost has to go 
back us early as 1875, a decade before 
Alumni Kail was actually bunt. At 
that thne, there w.^pS bnly two good., 
buildings on the Normal School csm. 
pus. On the south stood the original 
building, then somewhat leas than 
twenty years old and housing the men 
students. Oh the north 9^ the qew 

Alumni Hall. Each graduate of the 
schoo', by paying fifteen dollars, was 
to become a stockholder in the enter- 
prise. On this basis, it was hoped that 
the building could be completed dmv 
ing the year 1678. 

"Shall we not build upon these hal- 
lowed grounds," it was asked, "some 
memorial of our gratitude to the dear 
old Normal ag a tes^ionial of what 
she has done for us?** 

By the end of the decade, however, 
there were still only the two princi- 
pal buildings on the campus. 

The Erection of Alumni Hall 

In September, 1880, Dennison C. 
Thomas took over the principalship of 
the Normal School. At this time, nor- 
thern Pennsylvania was, experiencing 
a period of great development. The 
conununity of Mansfield had grown 
from a population of eight hundred in 
1870 to one of seventeen himdred a 
decade later. The school itself was 
undergoing a similar expansion. 

Dr. Thomas realized that, to keep 
pace with the times, the Normal 
School should expand its physical fa- 
cilities.. In 1884, therefore, a tremen- 
dous building program was launched 
that was to transform the face of the 
campus. A decade later. Alumni Hall 
and the Gymnasium, (now the Stu- 
dent Center) had been erected, the ' 
present North Hall was more than 
ha'f completed, and South Hall (the 
original building) had been remodel- 

Alumni Hall was the first unit in 
this building program. In 1884, the 
Nonnal School catalogue csfne out 
'with this paragraph: "niere is now 

ready for use at the beginning of 
the faU term." - 

The erectioQ of this building . . . 
not occtir so long ago as to be ou4 
of the memory of anyone living to- 
day. One of Mansfield's older resi- 
dents can well remember the times 
when he went up to the campus 
and watched with fascination as 
the builders laid the bricks on the 
rising structure. 

As it turned out, tile -buildiag 
was not quite co;mpleted by the end 
of 1885. However, on February 24, 
1886, it was possible for the Mans- 
field Advertiser to lead off a news 
article ^ith the following para- 

"The new Chapel'^ Ball at. the 
Normal ^chpoV; in ttUii- /~i>oro, . was 
formally opened to^ the public last 
Friday evening by the seventeenth 
annual entertainment of the Atlien- 
aean Society. About eight hundred 
persons, includiAg many Croin 
abroad, attended. The Orphan 
School Band . . . furnished excell- 
ent music before and dwHbg' the en- 
tertainment. The beauty of the hall 
and the good taste displayed in ar- 
ranging the stage were remarked 
on all sides. It -was a scene long to 
be remembered." 

Alumni HaU had been built at a 
cosU of over twmtjr-five thousan^l^ 
dollars (a small sum by - today's 
standards, it is. true). In structurid 
appearance, it was almost exactly 
the same in 1886 as it is today, ex- 
cept, of course, that it was then a 
aew building. The three levels of 
windows on the sides, the designs of 
the porches in front, the structure 
of the TQOt, the ma^n tower rismg 
above the other — these' have changed 
hacdly at all. Meanwhile, the rest of 
the campus, in its gradual evc/lution 
over the years, has become com- 
pletely diff^resit ' from what it was 

A Bell for ttie Tower 
If a viewer looked up at the belfry 
of the main tower in those early 
months of 1886, however.'he would see 
no bell. This liad not yet; been pro- 

In process of erection/ midway be^r-^ured. Thiere was no clocli^^ 

tween the present structures, a new 
building 54 x' 117 feet, three stories 
high, whiph will contain Model 
School Rooms, Society Rooms, and a 
capacious Chapel, 108 x 54 iect 
This wUl be completed ' during the 


•nie catalogue of the following 
year said this: "This building is 
nearly eompleted and will . be 

keep time. The two six-fbot dials on 
the tower were merely dummies. 
From the start, however, both a clock 
and a bell had been intended for the 
tower. How soon these could be sup- 
plied was merely a matter of expense 
and availability. ' _ - 

The Alumni Association, for w;ticli 
the building was named,, hald its yn* 
nual reunion during Comhieacem«nt 

week of 1886. DfUring its meeting, tlie 
assuuiauon voted to ouy both a clock 
ana a oeil the earliest pbssibte op- 
portumty a^ad Jiave tli^ insydle^ in 
tne lower, i _ 

A b^u, costing five huncEre^ fifty 
dollars, soon arrived and was l^mg .in 
ine place oi honor that it still occu- 
piers Luaay. Not until 1907, however, 
wou.d a clock be obtained. During the 
lust twenty years, the bell would be 
lung by hand three times a day — in 
the morning, at noon, and in the eve- 
mng. one of tii« students would be 
aeiegated to perform this task, amd 
the "slidea" through which tlie ropes 
passed can still 1>» found in the tower. 
iTeiB 1886 Comraencemeni 
Th^ auditorium or chapel of Alumni 
Hall, whicli .seated twelve hundred 
persons, occiipied the entire third 
floor. For the previous decltde and a 
half, the JTormal School Commesice- 
ments and many other programs had 
generally t>eea held In the Methodist 
i!.piscopal Church, which liad been 
ereccea in 1871 on the corner of Wells- 
boro and Academy Streets. The 1886 
Commencement, on June 17, was the 
lirst to take pl^ce in Aiunmi Hall. 
'Ihe Mansfield Advertiser of June 23 
re-creates the scene. 

"The Mansfield Cornet Band as- 
sembled in front of their rooms, cor-, 
ner of liain and WeUsboro Streets, 
about half past niiie Thursday morn- 
ing, and tooted a lively air as they 
marched in double file toward the 
Normal. In front of Alumni Hall 
they halted and rendered two pop- 
ular selections. Guests also arriVed_ 
long before . the time announce(t^li9# 
commenci ng jffie exercises o^ ■ the 
daiy, and" itentlemap^^ usfiers s£owed 
them to favorable seats in the centre 
of the hall. The trustees and clergy, 
followed by the graduating class, 
marched down the center aisle, the 
former occupying seats on the stage 
and the latter taking seats in front 
of tlie stage in the auditorium. The 
heavy tapestry curtains were < drawn 
aside. Delicate palms and bright 
. colored flowers adorned the stage 
near the center of which sat the 
faculty of the school. The bmdc 
played 'Nearer My God to Thet:'." 

After the recitation of numerous 
essays by members of the graduating 
class, several solos, and some words 
©i advice from ^ the principal, "the 
graduating class, fifty-four in num- 
ber, took positions on the stage, 
each received a parchment diploma 
held together with a bit of blue rib- 
.b<^n,,^d all joined together in sing- 
ing the class song, 'Nemo Solus 
Sapif ... 

That Commencement week was a 
busy one, both for Alumni Hall 
and for the Normal School. It had 
opened with the Baccalaureate ser- 
vices on Sunday morning and in- 
cluded, among other things, class 
day exercises on Tuesday morning,, 
the Aluipni' dinner imd reunion on 
Wednesday afternoon, and a "grand . 
display of fireworks'* on Wednesday 
evening, the week of activities was 
opelning with the Commencement 
excerises in the morning In the 
evening, the week if activities was 
brought to a close with a preseuta- 
tioa in Aluroni. HaU of "The Mikado" 
by the corniced Normal Litertiry 
and A^osaean Societies. 

That was in 1886. Commencement 
activities and other prograihs of all 
types would continue in Alumni 
Hall for more than forty years. 
The ModiCl School 
The Model School, located in the 
original North Hall since 1874, mov- 
ed into n|w quarters in Alumni Hall 
upon thari5iiiiailiig's~~completion; In 
those days there wfere two public 
grade schools in Mansfield; the Mod- 
el School, operated by the Normal 
Scliool and taught by students of 
that institution, and the Graded 
School, located on the present site 
Of Mansfidd Senior High School on . 
tlie other ^de oi town and h6t con- 
nected witii the Normal. >- ■< 

When the Model School had been 
founded shortly after Mansfield be- 
came a Normal School in 1862, Mans- 
field was one of only nineteen nor- 
mal schools in the country to offer 
such facilities for practice teachmg. 
By 1801, the Model School con- 
sisted of eleven grades; taking pupils 
fyom six to sixteen.v 

Aiunmi Hall also contained rooms 
for the two literary societies at 
Mansfield, the Normal literary So- 
ciety, or^nixed in 1864» and the 

Athenaean Society, organized in 
1869. These rooms, according to the 
Mani^ield Advertiser of Juhe 16, 
i886, "richly furnished and 

k>e<iudfuiiy . decorated." (Wliether or 
not the attractiveiaess of the new 
rooms had anything to do with it is 
not apparent, but, by 1894, there 
were no fewer than five .Utersry 
societies on the campus.) 

Before Alunmi Hall was yet <^ 
decade old, recitation rooms tar 
Nonnal School classes came to be 
provided. (This feature of the buil(|r 
ing was -destined to outlast aU the 
others. Long after the society roomf 
were gone and the Model School 
and auuitoriuna were moved to other 
quarters, college classes were still 
being conducted in Alumni Hall.) 

By ttie turn of the century, the 
first floor of Alumni Hall was .oc- 
cupied by the Model School chapel 
and classrooms for ihe upper ele- 
mentary grades. On the second floor, 
alternate rooms were given over for 
the lower grades and for Normal 
School clttsses. The basement hous-

Installation of ihe Clock 

In 1907, exactly half a century I 
ago, clO(^-w(tfks were. linajly in- ]i 
stalled in the main- tower of^'A^umni^ ; 
Hall. The old" custom of ringing the 
the I^ll would sound from its place ' 
the. tower clock, then new, began 
its long career of striking the hours 
and half-hours. Through the, years, 
the ell would sound from its place 
high., in the J$wer. Its strong, clear 
ntrte would be" heafd .ovgi> tjae compus, t 
over the streets, of the community, 
and, faintly at least, over' the. sur- i 
rounding countryside. Alumni Hall | 
had assumed the role for whic)i it | 
would become most loved. | 

About 1909, alter the completion 
of North Hall, the Arcade was built, 
and certain alterations were made 
to the back part .of Almmi IlalL 
The tall chimn^ at th* tadc was : 
removed, a small brick sectkm was 
added to the rear of the building, 
and two or three new windows 
were installed. The appearance of . 
the building^i^vyas m i le ch anged, 
however. , _ 

In U^e ,fan.^of 1910, ah organ w?is| 
iastalled' ih** the thifd-floor auditor- j 
ium. Made by the Austin ' Organ t 
Company of Hartford, Conn., it pos- 
sessed orchestral effects as well as 
organ tones and was claimed to be 
t>ie finest school pipe organ in the 
state. The organ was played at many 
beautiful recitals, open to both stu- j 
debts and townspeople. I

Nineteen twelve marked the ftf- 1 
tieth anniversary of Mansfield's 
recognition as a Normal School. A 
special celebration was held dur- 
ing Commencement week, from June 
16 to 20, during- which .time b-jth 
business places and homes in the i 
town were draped with jred. andf 
black t'6 welcome the alimsni atrld i 
other visitors. • " ^ 

A full schedule of programs uas 
se; up for the five-day observance , 
Those to take place in Aiunmi Htll 2 
included the Baccalaureate exercis- 
es, the Model School operetta, tho 
Normal School opera, a histonra»| 
address by Simo|i B. Elliott, an spMI^ I 
versary address by the State Sup«r-I 
intendent of Public instruction, the f 
Commencement exercises, and thw 
school play. It was said that, on 
nearly every occasion, the generous 
capacity of the auditorium was ; 
crowded, that the audiences over- 1 
flowed into the aisles and many 
Were obliged to turn 'away. 

It was at this time that a Semi- 
centennial tablet, hand- carved and 
polished, was placed on the front 
wfiil of the' auditorium, adjoining 
ty stage on ttie north sicje. This 
tablet, bearing the Vords "Charac- 
teic^ Scholarahip, Cu]|tiu«» S^irvice' 
can today be seen by every person 
on his way into the auditorium of' 
Straughn HaU. 

In 1914,- the yellow -brick Model' 
School building on Wilson Ave. 
(now the Education Center) was 
erected. Both' Alittnni Hall, which the 
town childreii had attended*, and; 
the old Graded School, serving the 
country children, reltriquished their 
roles as public elementary schools 
to the new Model School, which 
thenceforth served all the children of 
the area in g|iid^. fgt^

Th-e Junior High School 

The Graded School building was 
then converted into the seat ol Ma:is. 
lield Higii School, whic^ was not a 
part of the Normal School. Aivunni 
tiall woula -have to- wait six" years 
before it would again assume a pub- 
lic sehool role. However, in Septem- 
bef, 1920, the nucleus of the junior 
Higii SC..00I movement in 
lield was fornied wnen a ninth 
grade met lor the first time '"to the 
ot.&eiiieni, or Alumni Hall. 

At the beginnmg or the second 
semester of that school yeai', the 
seventh and eighth grades were 
mov^ 'ovbr from the Model Sciiool 
to join the ninth grade, and the 
new junior high school was estab- 
lished on the first floor of Alumni 
Hall. Thus was instituted in 1321 
the 6-3-3 plan in the Mansfield pub- 
lie schools. 

The junioir high school began to 
feel Tather cramped in . Alumni 
Hall, however, and, in September, 
1927, it moved into a large, brand- 
new building on the eastern end of 
the campus. 

llie Anditorivm llirburh toe 1^ 

For more than forty years, the 
auditorium of Alumni Hall had form- 
td perhaps the nucleus of activi- 
ties on the Normal School campus. 

■'^t had been a center of school and 
cwjununity life. Plays, opeisub 
cttiis, fiddresses, Conunenaehient.^^ 
all had taicen pl^ce there. 

Silicon B. Elliott had delivered his 
roo^ famous historical address there 
in 1890. "Standing here near the 
close of the 19th century," he had 
said, "I am forced to believe that 
the probability yea, almost cer- 
tainty— i3, that we are wuy in tiie 
early mom of the world's advance- 
ment. The next, and long succeed- 
ing, centuries, will see greater pro- 
gress than have any of the past." 

■ William Howard Taft, former 
I?resident . of the United States, 
i^ioke oQce in Alumni Hall. So did 
^iiiet^ jNncfaot while vtm Governor 
of Pennsylvania. (In his addxess,' . 
Gbverhor Pinchfrt -"iRRr — said that 
there were in his cabinet more ior- 
Xfier students from Mansfield than 
from any other school.) Dr. Will Geor- 
ge Butler led the orchestra there 
many times, arid Dr. William R. 
Straughn, principal of the school, 
Oftspi to chapel (as assembly 
was tiMm called). 

ProlMib'y, the greatest, single event 
ever to. take place in Alumni Hall 
dccurred on October 25, 1926. On 
the stage of the auditorium, Henry 
Kloi^ower, representing the State 

department of Public Instruction, 
presented to the school a decree giv- 
ing it the power to give four- year 
crimes. This d(-cr( 0, which carried 

with it thp ri^t to graiit the degree 
of Bachelor of Science, was accepted 
by Dr. Straughn. On .this occasion, 
the school became in I'act, though 
not in name, a state teachers college. 
(A formal resolution, passed in 
Harriaburg the following May, 

'•authorized the change of name to 
• ivianatielcf State Teachers Collegt" 

The auditoriuRi -was stiut serving 
as a center of college activity in tl:e 
cuiiy spring ol 1»2/. Then came an 
action that marked the great turn- 
ing point in the history of Alumni' 
Hall; the State condemned the 
building as unsafe . for assembly pur- 
poses. In other words, the auditorium 
would 'no longer be. used as such. When 
the students returned to Mansfield 
in tha fall they found that Alumni 
Hail nad lost its principal role for- 

_ evtr. . ■ . 


The -days of Alumni Hall as a use- 
ful i)arl of the campus were by no 
means over. The first and second 
floors continued to be used for col- 
lege classes. The tower clock con- 
tinued to strike. Still, the fact le- 
ma ihed that the auditori um eh the 
^ird floor had been complel'ely . 
abandoned. aoOJege programs, in- 
cluding Commjenoement activities, 
were transferred to the wooden 
gymnasium (today the Student Cen- 
ter), while the old stage, seats, and 
stood unused in Alumni 

change in people's feelings toward 
the building occurred at this timer 

The building was condemned, anti- 
quated, no longer adequate to the 
times, a symbol of the past — such 
thoughts must have run through 
people's minds. So arose a public 
impression of Alumni Hall as an 
"old ivy-covered building!' " at- as 
"ancient Alumni Hall" (as it was 
called once in the fhid-~1930's). This 
was an old landmark past its best 
days, worthy perhaps, of pity anU. 
with it, of veneration and love. 

In late 1930, the pipe organ was 
Iremoved from Alumni Hall, reoon- 
structea, and installed in the new 
audltoflum building 13ien nearly 
completed anrf soon to be known as 
Straughn Hall. Meanwhile, the old 
auditorium was demoted to the 
status of a work-out center for 
Mansfield wrestlers who were to 
compete with wrestling squads from 
other schools. Here, ar^ one Flash-^ 
light reporter's impressions of the^ 
cha^ige that had taken place, as pub- 
lished in this newspapper < on De- 
cember b, 1930. 

"The stage once glorified uy ^ov- 
geouS scenery and haunted by Thes- 
pians, artists, musicians and orators, 
is the r^idezvous of a hardy band„ 
of athletes, who would 'further 
Mansfield's pinstige on the itaat 

The tower clock of Alumni Hall has become the symbol of the coUege. 
And It has symbolized not- only the Mansfield State Teachers CoUege of to- 
day, but the college of the past, as well-^d of the fatiine.» ' ^

Seven years passed. College class- 
es stiU being taught in Aluhmi 
Hall, for the State's prohibition 
against the continued use of the 
^auditorium for that purpose did not 
.apply to the use of the lower floors 
for classrooms. In late 1937, howicver, 
came the announcement of . a new 
building program tliat was ^ to result 
in the erection of the Arts Build- 
ing, the present Gymnasium, and 
the ^ Elementary School building. 
iMaiura-ly, the future role of the old- 
buildings came under discussion. 

Alumni Hall, it was stated, would 
eventually have to be replaced. On 
us site would be biUlt an administra- 
tion building. .However, this would 
not be part ^f the-, construction pro- 
ject about tb g^t underway. (Nothing 
was said at that time about A new 
library building for the College Lib- 
rary was still firmly established on 
the first floor of old South Hall.) 

When the new Elementary School 
building was completed in 1940, 
the old Model : School building be- 
came available for other uses.. Soon 
it had tak(en on the name o'f the 
Education Center and became si col- 
lege classroom building. 

So, no one should have been sur- 
prised when he read this item on 
the front page of the January 27, 
Ij^, issue of The Flashlight : 
, "It seems that the inevitable, must 
come to pass end the once hallowed 
walls will nev^r again reverberate - 
from the clatter of students' footsteps 
plodding their weary way to classes 
on the first floor of Alumni Hall. On 
students' ears fall the sad announce- 
ment that classes will no longer be ' 
held in Alumni Hall, first floor, after 
^ be a n teteig^ pm of eeiiege life, 
■fi&i second sefiaester. To some of the 
V|>perclaasmen Alumni Hall has come 
fo be an intragal part of college life, 
just as much as term papers or cokes 
at the Dairy Store. It will seem 
quite different, not having to rush to 
eight oNclgek _cfesses in. the stilt^lmV

So, by the early P«rt of World W«r 

II, it locked as if the days of ihe 
buflding forsaken, through the 
yt ais, by t ie Model .school, the jun- 
ior high school, the auditorium, and 
, most college classes — were near 
their close. Old, mellowed, a little 
weary, Alumhi Hall stood there on 
the front .campus, its. dock ticking 
away the hours. Yet, the daily acti- 
vity of college life was coming more 
and more Ho pass it by^^ . 

A New.Boie' FoiT Alnmni Hall 

Then, the war ended and millions 
of American soldiers came back from 
abroad. The large number of veter- 
ans whose studies had been inter- 
rupted by the war and who now 
wished to complete their education 
pushed Mafi^gia's male enrolhnfiit 
up from its wartime low of practic- 
awy nothing \o ■ unheard-of levels. 

Old South Hall had housed men 
students since before Mansfield had 
LLLome a Normal School. . lis IfecBi- 
ties were now inadequate 1^-, ttiem-" 
selves to provide for the * swollen - 
male population, however. Alumni 
Hali "and' the Y Hut were pressed 
into service as additional dormitor- 
ies, f 

So, Alumni Hall was refcu^^rom 
oblivion. Not only was it given its 
new role as a dormitory, but a 
study room for men day students 
and the men's mail distribution cen- 
ter \,ore located there. Meanwhile, 
the classes that had still been meet- 
ing in the building were transferred 
to the Education Center, 

While the impor:ahce of Atumni 
Hall had steadily been reduced over 
the years. South Hall continued as 
a center of college activity, serving 
a greater number of functions than 
any single building but North Hall 
does 4oday° But now, in the'late 
'forties, the ni'nety-year-old building 
>yas proving unequal to the demands 
tnat wereni necessarily placed upon 
it. First, the upper floo^ which had 
grown dilapidated, were abandoned. 
Then, in 1950, everything else, inl 
eluding the College Library, was 
moved out. Old South Hall was clos- 
ed up and made ready for demoli- 

So, Jby a, stfOke of fate, it , was 
South Hal^ rather tha^ Alumni • Hall ' 
that wtaf^^rst Ihe six^-fotir-yvair- 

old Alumni Hall stood by as its long- 
time neighbor was leveled to the i;'ully. twenty-three years af- 
ter the closing of its auditbrium' and 
the beginning of its long deeluu,. 
Alumni Hall became the oldest HaSId-' 
ing on the campus. .

porary dormitory while a modern- 
style men's dormitory, so dUferefiit

When the new building was com-

had been using- Alumni Hall moved 
out. The college classes did not move 
back. For the first time sin<|^ its 
opening in 1 886, no room in the 

save stonge. , None ever would be 
again. * 

And so, for the last four years, tlie 
old halls have stood deserted.

Mansfield Advances Hisforic spots 
With Dr. 

For the past fourteen years, Mans- 
field State Teachers College has been 
under the leadership of President 
James G. Morgan. This has been a 
period of forward progress for the 
college in the continued development 
not^ only of its physical facilities but 
also of its academic , program. 

iDuring the preceding 22 years, 1st- 
tweea 1921 and 1943, Mr. Morgan ser- 
ved the institution in various capaci- 
ties, including those of Instructor of 
Psychology, Director of Extension 
Education, Dean oi. Xnstructkm^ and 
AcJaj*„President, — v_ 

Increasingly during this tnne, Mr. 
Morgan has been active* in the work 
of ma-ay counter, regional, state, and 
national organizations. These include 
the Tioga County Selective Service 
Board, the General Sullivan Council 
of the Boy Scouts of America, the 
American Legion, and prmninent ^u- 
tional groups. 

" Sktaes O. Morgan was ttie wm of A 
superintendent of steel mills in the 
Lehigh Valley "and was graduated 
from the Tower City High School in 
Schuylkill County. Mr. Mbrgan then 
attended Kutztown State Teachers 
CcOlege ^nd li^bahlenburg College in 
Pensoyivanbu receiving from the lat- 
ter the degree ol Ph. B. He took his 
graduate work at the .Unlvwsity of 
Pennsylvania and the Universi^ of 
Michigan. At Michigan, he was grant- 
ed the M.A. degree. 

During World War I, Mr. Morgan 
ygM & member of the Seventy-ninth 
biviaon Artillery. Much of his aer- 
•vil»» record was made overieas. 

James 6. Morgan begaa his e^ca- 
tional career in the Ungraded nfhools 
of Schuylkill County. Soon, he was 
supervising principal of the Tower 
City schools. Advancing to the colleg- 
iate level, Mr. Morgan joined the fac- 
ulty of Muhlenburg College, where 
he gave instruction in psychology and 
' educaticm^ 

Me. MorgKi came to what was then 
Mahsfieid State Normal School in 
1921, during the administration of Dr. 
William R. Straughn. For mapy years, 
Mr, Morgan was a member of the 
Education Department and Instructor 
in Psychology. 

Later, Mr. Morgan beoanke Director 
of Exte'nMtm Educatioa at Manirfleld. 
For a time after President Jofeeph F. 
Moonan left the college in 1939, and 
again at the conclusion of President 
Lester K. Ade's term in 1941, Mr. 
Morgan served as Acting President. 

One of Mr. Morgan's contributiais 
to the college dm-ing this period was 
the establishment of a psycho-educa- 
tion clinic in what is now known as

sumed the position of Dean of Instruc- 
tton. which he cocitinued to hold 
through the years of the Second 
World War. In 1948, after President

On June 28, 1948, Tjamea Q. Morgan 
.advanced to the presidency of Mans- 
field State^ Teachers College. The 
years^mder his administration have 

'been eventful ones for Mansfield. 
They have brought extensive im- 
provements to the campus, including 
the erection of the new South Hall, 
and Science Building and the addition' 
of a new kitchen and bakery to North 
HalL 3%iey brought a new state teach, 
ere coUege curriculud» - that went 
into effect in 1931. They brought the 
largest enrollment in Mansfield's his- 
tory immediately after World War II, 
and they are currently bringing a 
steady increase in enrollment which, 
if so far less spectacular than the 
earlier sharp rise, promises to be, of 
far greater importance for 'the future. 
They offer the prospect of an ^ten- 
sive building program whidi will 
greatly enhance the services that 
Mansfield will be alble to render to 
its students. 

During his career at Mansfield, 
President Morgan lias taken a prom- 
inent role in. the affairs of many 
organizati<»8 mitside the college. 

President Morgan has been con- 
nected with the Boy Scout movement 
since 1913. For twelve years begin- 
ning in 1935, he was President of the 
General Sullivan Council and is now 
Chalmutn of Leadersiiip Training and 
representative to the Witibhal Coun- 
cil, i 

A member of the American Legion, 
Department of Pennsylvania, Mr. 
Morgan was chairman of the depart- 
ment's - B^ iScmst vii^i^iKgi^ 

Among the educational organiza- 
tions to which president MOTgan be- 
longs are Kappa IMta Pi.^ Phi Sigma 
vPi, Phi Delta Kappa, and PM Kappa 
Tau in additiin to the National Edu- 
cation Association and the Pennsyl- 
vania State Education Association. 

l^e awards that Mr. > Morgan has 
received include Selective Service 
Medal of Merit (1946); the Silver 
Beaver Award and the Silver Ante- 
lope Award of the Boy . Scouts (1938 
and 1952, respectively); and the Dis- 
tinguished Service Certificate of the 
gion, Department of 
Pennaylvania, which vms awarded in 
1953 at tb» iMtgioi^it tltiK^ ebsweittlsii 
in Pittsbun^. 

Dr. WilUam Ringgold Straughn 
served as head of this institution lor . 
more than twenty-two years. From 
1914 to 1927, Dr. Straughn was Prin- 
cipal of Mansfield State Normal 
School. From 1927 until his death in 
1936, he was President of Mansfield 
State Teachera College. 

Mansfield's rise to collegiate rude 
after more than sixty-four yeajs as a 
Normal School was only one of tiie 
marked advances made during the 
administration of Dr; Straughn. Aca- 
demic standards were raised, new 
courses of study were introduced^ 
major depeaktBteciUy were opened or 
extended and tiumerous improve- 
ments were made to the campus/ "' 

William R. Straughn was born oti 
April 23, 1882, the third child of a 
country preacher, at " Mardella 
Spi^s, Md. He attended school |n 
Maryland and Delaware, graduating 
from Baltimore City College. , 

Dr. Straughn received his A B. 
degree from Johns Hopkins Univer-

he took post-graduate work at the 

At this time, J(4ins R^Idos was

was a practice there for small clas-

ous teachers of his time, taught a 
class in Greek in which Dr. Straughn

While studing at JchaiB Hopkifis 
Dr. Straughn found it necessary to 
earn his way, first as a reporter and 
later in an editorial capacity on the 
Baltimore newspapers. His work 
brought him into contact with some 
of the grmtttirtl newqiiqp^r men ol 
that era. 

In 1908, Dr. Straughn received the, 
degree of PhJD. from the University 
of Kansas City. 

From 1902 to 1906, William R. 
Straughn tau^t at Baltimore City 
College. For the next five years, he 
was oigaged as Assistant Principal

where he beciune Superint^ent of 

Dr. Straughn became Principal of 
Mansfield State Normal School in 
1914, succeeding Dr. Andrew Thomas 
Smith, wlio had served since 1899. 
Dr. Straughn, a membar^^ti^> Penn- 
sylvania State Council of Education 
from 1926 until his death, worked 
hard to have the Slate Normal 
Schools of Pennsylvania raised to 
collegiate standard. Mansfield re- 
ceived the right to give four-year 
courses and txmieat degrees in 1926. 
The following year, Mansfield be-

came the fint institution in Penn- 
sylvania to be officially Imown as a 
state teachers college. 

'ffM impcovements made at Ifans- 
field under Dr. Straughn were many 
and varied. Notable among them 
were the establishment of the Cam- 
pus junior High School in 1921, Uie 
organizaticm of a new three-year 
music course in 1921, the strength- 
ening of the Home Economioi De- 
partment in the early 1920*8, and the 
addition of many new structures tc^' 
: tiie campus, including Straughn Hail, 
the Junior High School buixding, the 
heating plant, and the President's 
Home. After ' 1926, the three-year 
counm at Mansfield • were replaced 
by four-year courses. .- — 

An indication of the general es- 
teem felt for Dr. Straughn by both 
the college and the community was 
tiie unprecedented step taken in 193U,

Mansfield campus and see how many 

historic spots we come across. 

On the way from North Hall to 
S&ip^g!m^U6^Wm eeme 

to a large sto-ne at the left of the walk. 
T:iis stone was pmced there in honor 
of those Mansfield students who 
lought in World War I, and on it there 
is a copper plate that reads : "In 
iio.ior of t:ie five hundred young meii 
and women, who in the spirit of 
rifice and devotion, gave their ser- 
H v i ce a to th e ir counby." Th e nam e tf of — 
'those nien who lost their lives in tiiat 
war are also eagi^ved ^on^,the plate. 
On eiUier side of the walk is a large 
elm tree, placed there aiong wi.h the 
sLone as a part, Of. thS' World I 

Let us continue on into Straughn 
Hail. Inere, to the rj|^ of the doors 
wat lead from the foyer Into the 
autatorium, we see a black tad gold 
honor roll. This is dedicated to the 
inen and women at Mansfield who 
served and who gave tneir lives in 
World War II. 

Over tJrie same doors, in the center 
of khe wail, is set an oakien plaque. 
Hand-parved irom^^ dark wood, this 
plaque was prewnted to what was 
Uilen the Normal School by the stu- 
dent body in 1912, in coooinemoration 
c-i ihe school's fifieth anniversary as 
a teacher- traiaing institution. Before 
bcraughn Hall was built, this pbique 
was located in Alumni Hall. 

>ve leave Sirauglm Hall now, walk 
past Ihe Arts Bulii^big and go along 
tne sioewalk on Aeaoemy Street tiiat 
ieaas past North and Alumni Halls. If 
we looiv closely, we can see among 
the trees an old stone bench that 
Stems to have been there always. Ac- 
luaLy, however, tliis bench was pre- 
Jented to the school about 1914 by the 
members 'of the old Delphic Frater- 
nity after the four social fraternities 
uii the campus had been abolished. 
What Fratenti^ies? Before 1914, tii«er 
were at the NormaL School four soc- 
ial organizations: uie ' Ag9otai| ss^ 
Clionian frate/nities for women and 
the Phixalethean and Delphic frater-.^ 
nities for men. The Delphic Frater- 
nity itself uad been founded in 1899. 
(Ever since its abolition, a banquet 
has been held every year on the even- 
ing of Alumni Di^ for tiiose former 
students who were members of the 
fraternity during its decade Md a liall 
on ttie campus.) 

The stone bench was purchased by 
members of the fraternity from funds 
received by the sale of their equip- 
ment and is carved to look as if it 
were made of tree branches. Traditioa 
tias it that any couple that sits on the 
bench will' be the next to marry. 

As we look up fn»n the b«»kch, our

years that it has stood there, this 
tower has become a syml>ol of the

taey stood and chanted, "Hail, Mans^

Mansfield To Begin 


rganizatiohs Past and Present 

An extensive projeram of building 

construction and other improvements 
on the' rampus of Mansfield State 
Teachers College will probably have 
been begun before the end of this one 
hundredth anniversary year. Themost 
immediate projects are the erection 
of a Library and Adminstration Build- 
ing, tjii^ setting up of a new Athletic 
Field, and the exteivilon ot utility 
services. ^Other projects, includhiff the 
construction of a new dontiitory are 
slated for the college. 

The architects for the building pro- 
gram are to be Johnson, Gray and 
Associates of Erie. Pa. This group has 
been conducting a comprehensivie sur- 
vey of the campus, now nearly com- 
pleted. The purpose of the survey has 
-vbetn^-t o d raw up a long - ran ge pli^Mo^ 
the location of future buildings and 
the extension of services. 
Library and Administratfon Building 

The first building to be erected will 
be the new Library and Administra- 
tion Building. It is now definite that 
this wUl be located on the site of. 
Almui HWQ on the frai|t campus. The 
d«ri^ o< ttM building ^Inrill ^xiibody 
«he latest aRMtectur^^^j^bu^ 1^ 
will be built to harm<miw» with the 
rest of the campus. 

The^ first floor of the newr building 
will be devoted to the College Lib- 
rary, which has occupied temporary 
quarters in North Roll since 1950, 
iVmong the modem facilities to be 
provided will be those for stu^. boolc

College Library has held an import- 
ant place on the campus for many 
years, the move into the new building 
coniiple ted should greatly en- 
hance its value and attractiveness for 
the students 

On the second floor will be ftm 
administrative offices, now also lo- 
cated in North Hall. These will in- 
clude the offices of the president. 
Dean ol' I. istruclion, Business Mana- 
ger, and Publicity Manager. The 
Bcokroom will- also be on this floor. 

Construction 9f the new building 
will very likely beghi later in the 
y«ar. It will be necesaary in the mean- 
time to tear down Alumni Hall, in- 
cluding the famous clock tower. It is 
envisioned, however, thert fca its place 
will rise a new clock tower, to be 
erected as a part of the Library and 
Adminstration Building. Thus, ta old 
tradition . will be carried on. 

Upon the completion of the Library 
and Adin^^raticm Buildinf, the sec- 

ond floor of North Hall will be made 
over so that the entire floor will be 
devoted to donnitory^rooms. This will 
be the first step in an expansion of 
dormitory facilities thrft will become 
necessary as the enrollment steadily

Ar ether project on which construc-

football gridiron, a baseball diamond, 
and a running track, as well as ade-

been used by Mansfield since before 
the turn of the century. 

Extension of UtUitles 

The extension of utility service^, 
which will be necessary to meet the 
ncuds of the other ncv» fcciliticc, will 
include the improvement of electric,-

in addition to clock, fire alaifm, ' and 
emergency lighting systems.

It is expected also that, in the near 
future, a third dormitory building 
will be constructed. 

Over-all Program 

The over-all building program that 
is about to get underway should be 
completed by the year 1965, at which 
time the enrollment is expected to be 
approximately 1500. Slated for inclu- 
sion in this program are another dor-

Because of the long-range plan for 
the campus that the architects have 
been making, all buildings and other 
improvements will be placed so as to 
be in harmony with their surround-

ings and geographical features that 
are already present when the addi- 
tion to the campus is made, but also 
the buildings that are planned for 
erection afterwards. It is the objective

Student government at Mansfield 
traces its beginning to 1918, when a 
plan for self-government in the wom- 
en's dormitory was dramn up. A girl 
was chosjen from each floor and the 
group became the Woi^gh's Student 

1 he. men organized for self-govern- 
ment in 1920, forming the Young 
Men's Student Government Associa- 
tion. - 

tn 1928. there was formed a Down- 
town Women's Council of eight mem- 
Leis. The organization disbanded after 
one year, but, thenceforth, the Stu- 
oent Council chose three members to 
represent the off-campus students. 

rhe Men's and' Women's Councils 
began holding joint meetings in 1928. 
Uniil 1941; ^e tv<^«r coimcus decided 
periodically whether they would func- 
tion as a single group or as two sep- 
arate groups. In that year, the two 
councils were permanently merged 
into the Student Council. 

Every student is a member of the 
Mansfield Student Government Asso- 
ciation. Fourteen elected persons re- 
present the students on the Student 
Council. This council is now putting 
into c^ect a revision of its member- 
ship to include one representative 
from each of the four . major depart- 
ments at the coU^.

Religion has been a regular part of 
student life at Mansfield for more 
than seventy years. The Y.M.C.A. was 
founded in the early 1880's and the 
Y.W.C.A. began in the latter part of 
ihe same deciade. V ' 

These two groups were to outlast 
all other student organizations exist- 
ing at that time. By the period im- 
mediately following the Second World 
War, these two groups were increas- 
ingly holding their activit^s jointly 
and they collectively took the ziame , 
of the Campus Y. . 

During the 1951-1952 school ^ear 
the Y,M.C.A. and the Y.W.C.A. were 
merged to form the Student Christian 

This year, the Newman Club has 
joined the list of student organiza- 
tions at Mansfield. This organization, 
which is open to all Catholic student.s 
has been in. operation for . several 
years but had formerly been only un- 
officially connected with the c6ilege. 

The S.C.A. and the Newma-A Club 
cooperated during the year in help- 
ing to plan Religion in Life Week. 


In the course of Mansfield's history, 

■ tiieie liuve been a number of import- 
ant literary societies on the campus. 

I'he iMormal Literary Society .dieted . 
bacis. to 1864 and the Athenaean Soc- 
iety to 1869. Readini was the cliief in- 
terest of these groups, butj they often 
combined forces to present plays. Half 
a century after its founding, the Ath- 
exiaean Literary Society was still in 

■ existence. 

With the abolition of the original 
fiaiernities about 1915, the Emerson- 
ian Literary Society was formed and 
soun. became on^ of the l^frgest organi- 
zauons. The Emersonians gave pro- 
Jprlms, presented — papers, and eon-, 
uucieu aeoates on various subjects. 


German, French, and Latin clubs 
all were once prominent organizations 
at the college. 

Das Verenlein was organized in 1928 
to promote interest jn the German 
language and to acquaint students 
wiin the plays, customs, and games of 
uie 0erman people. 

Le Cerde J^ahcais was prominent 
in the 1900"s. Only French was spoken 
at meetings of this organization, 
which sought to learn more about 
France and its people. 

At one time, it would have been 
possible to corric across a group of 
students in togas conducting strange 
ceremonies. Tliis would have been a 
meeting of ihe Latin Club, or S.P.Q.R. 
Reliving Roman customs was its way 
of understanding the Roman way of 

Although some of the groups that 
were once on the campus are no 
longer in existence, there are many 
organizations that are active today. 
As a result, all the students have a 
variety^ of extra-curricular activi- 
ties t o choose from fl pt^orHinff tQ_

ttuiafield's fbotbya faiftonr eomt 
a span of sixty-six years. Obt of those 
years liave emerged several cfaamp- 
ioDBliip teams, many great players, 

and more than one "first" in football. 

Football got its start at Mansfield 
in th^ spring of 1891. Professor Jotm 
£dwar€Di^ xece&tly graw^ trom Ly 
fayette CoU^e has ]bln^ the faculty' 
of the Normal School. Mr. Edwards 
was a lover of sports, and it was he 
who called together a number of in- 
terested young meta to form .the first 
football team itu Mamtfleld'* Uifeory. 

After a few weeks of px^paratioo. 
this team took on. tts flnt Ofpsmn^t, 
Wellgb oro Hig h School. Manatieldwon_ 

by a score of" 22-0. In ffie foUowigg 

fail, a lull rchedule was planned. On 

September 25, 1891 the Itrst regularly 
Scheduled game was played as part 
i>f Mansfield Fair. A full sedson of 
scheduled game was played as part of 
Uie Man^ild Fair. A full season of 
games was played and foott>all has 
been at Mansfield ever since. 

Mansfield has had its share in the 
making of -national football history. 
In the spring of 1891, before the game 
against Weilsboro, the Mansfield 
team, conducted what is believed to be 
the first •i^rtng practice in. the United 
States. Another , big event occurred «f 
Smy the Park on S^tember 29, 1892. 
Mansfield was pitted against WyMning 
Seminary, and the game was ' played 
under lights. It has been proven that 
this was the first night footbalL, game 
ever played in this country. Twenty 
2,000-candle power lights were used, 
along with several lights of 30-candle 
power. Power was supplied by a 
ThnrnpsonrHuston ilyaamQ. The mme 
was called off at the half due to the 
poor quality of the lighting; the score 
at that time was 0-0. 

The first regular coach at Mansfield 
was James G. Dunsmore who came in 
1896. That year also marked Mans- 
field's finM; undefeated season. 

Big games came to Symthe Park in 
the next few years, including Penn 
State. Cornell, and Bucknell. Jn 1906. 
under the coaching of George B. 
CockhiU, Mansfield won over Buck- 
nell, defeated Alfred College on their 

h«nra iHetd, «^ beat Budm^'s sec- 
ond team by a score of 46-0. 

By this time, the game of football 
was developing Into a faster sport be- 
cause of the introduction of the for- 
ward pass. Mansfield proved to be 
faster than any of her opponen*^, 
piUng up a total of 116 points by the 
teams she opp«ed. 

The names of coaches at Mansfield 
flash by over the years; Ronald C, 
Kichline, who came in 1916; Edward 
C. Russell, in 1924; and Paul J. Davis, 
in 1932. After a 12-game winning 
streak in 1938, the Mansfield team 
took the state championship. The man 
behUKi that great jteam was Eugene 
" H. Mar t in :— — — - 

In 1946, the athletic department at 
the college was reorganized, and 
sports came under the direction of 
Marion "SpotLs" Decker. Edward 
Casey, a graduate of Villanova and 
the University of Scranton, was ap- 
pointed coach. Coach Casey was pre- 
sented wiiJi one hundred players, the 
largest squad ever to r^?!prt for 
trainint' Tliis was perhaps Malis- 
'field's golden year. It hu been said 
that t'lcse men represented the high 
point in abilii/, experience, and fight- 
ing spirit. 

The first game of the 1946 season 
was played under lights against Wy- 
oniing Seminary. Tnia was exacUy 
SS yearn after the fint niihl game 
had been played, between the same 
two 'teams, in the same park. Football 
^as V.\e big sport at M.S.T.C. and 
Mansfield was the team to beat dur- 
ing these early postwar years, for in 
both 1946 and 1947, Mansfield took 
the state championship. 
" Edward Bu^hin was appointed 
coach in 1950, while Edward Stelmack 
became the coach in 1955. 

Nine students who played their 
first football on this campus later 
went on to become "All Americans" 
and Mike Gazella, who later became 
at other colleges. Men IUec Joe Shau'^e 
major league baseball players, and 
George W. Woodruff and Joe Bedenlc, 
each oi wh<Hn became an "All Ameri- 
can" and coach at Penn Sti^ltr also 
carried the pigskin at ManiHeld.

and a half, until, in 1914 and 1915 
two excellent teams were produced 
by coach Emory B. Rockwell. It is

During World War II, basketball' 

waned, but it still , produced some 
fine players. After the war, the 
sport revived and has been fully 
active ever since. When Mansfield 
took the floor on December 10, 1956. 
her team was under the guidance of 
a new' coach, Mr. William Gibson. 
Tike 1M4-1957 season was finished 
wi& six whis and ten losses, but 
Mansfield's hopes for a bright bas-

Margaretta Bone, Miss Ruth Billings- 
and Miss Jean Holcombe. 

Hie purpose of the conference 
which met at the Hotel New Yorker, 
New York City, was to study reading 
problems of students from elementary 
school through college. 

Two of the featured ^tpeakers at the 
conference were "Dr. Martte Glock .of 
Cornell University and Dr. PhUip 
Shaw of Brooklyn College. Dr. Shaw 
is the author of the book used in our 
developmental reading course here 
on campus. 9

. Correction 

The notice in the April issue of 
^e VtJ^J^l^Wt concerning the 
new regulations on our cut sysr

should have read: All students 
who have accumulated absences 
totaling TWICE the number of se- 
mester hours in a particular 
course will not be given credit for 
the course until the Curriculum 
Committee reviews the case. 

Dr. Elizabeth Swan, head ef th« 
Ehl^h Depiartntient, has lusni gnhU 

ed her first sabbatical leave in thirty" 
years of teaching at MSTC. 

Dr. Swan expressed her gratitude 
to the administratipif for this ;i«iLve. 
especially at a time when replace- 
ments are hard to^ find. She plans to 
Le gone during the fall semester 1957- 
1958. • ,

Her plans, include refreshment of 
her intellectual and spiritual life?, at- 
tendance at lectures at n^rby col- 
legos and universities, arid much retid- 
ing that has to be n e gle cte d during 
teachihg aetfvlCies. Most of her l^ve 
will be spent here in Man.sfield; how- 
ever, she is hoping to take si trip 
south, accompanied by her husband. 
WiUiam E.-Swan: 


Dr. Swan received her B. A. from

Mansfield. Pennsylvania May 23. 1957 


Ge* Your Money*s WortK^ 

Everyone^ who enrolls in Mansfiejd is or ahouW,J^ jprepared to 
piH«ue a course M to learn t» the ^best 'df his capa%)ili- 

.ties. He expects the school to provide the classrooms, instructors, 
ififild living quarters with an atmospherei. that is conducive to, 
stu43r. That is fair, for the sliSlent is' paying for these services : 
but, does he realize how little else the school is obligated to pro- 
vide for him ? Take the Hut for example. There are many stu- 
dents—a great many-H3tiIl on campus who enrolled in the school 
when the Hut was something less than a germ of an idea, yet 
they have continued to pursue their studies at Mansfield, fully 
confident that they are getting their money'te wiorth. Hiough the 
Hut has been an actuality for over a year now, it was less than 
a year ago that any student could leave one of its old round ta- 
bles (hot a nice new booth) and stroll acrosef the porch absorbing 
the aura of dispair that oozed from the tennis .addi<H;s^ looking 
down upon the mud of the main tennis court. 

Consider the parking lots. Not only has a new one been carved 
. out, but how about that pre-macadam trek between the dorm and 
the EC Building? How much easier it is to get to the Science 
Building by using the new steps or that 'long stretch of paved 
sidewall' on the scuthrrn appioach than it was by last year's 
routes! Other improver ents oould be listed here, such as the tel- 
evision set in the Nctt;' IlnM lounge, the cleanini? and trimming 
of the woodsy hillside above the infirmaary, and though not quite 
so tangible it would reem fair to mention the innovation of ^nal 

All of these improvements have been riiade during the past 
year, and before they join the ranks of that l^ion of past im- 
provements now taken for granted, it would .seom a worthy idea 
to take a minute's thought and realize that it is possible for a 
person to acquire, for utilization or pleasure, a convenience that 
hit doesn't have to pay thr ough the nose for. 

II somewhere among the readers there is a person who has 

been subjected to the talk and wails of the perennial griper — the 
one who would renovate the college, its administration, campus, 
and niost of the students — it's all right for you to listen; but, 
when you begin to feel that you are being rooked and that some 
of the things, suoh as the swimming pool of the college catalogue, 
lack the grande|i(r of your expectations, why not forget your ire 
and acknowledge just what +he school owes you? This way you 
might find yourself happy wi'h the knowledge that after all you 
have a pretty good deal. . 



"T/ie Beginning 


Even if we were not connected with an Institution such as 9 
State Teachers College, it would certainly be obvious that this 
particular time of year is of a natufe closely associated with the 
ceremonies that mark the conclusion of a scholastic endeavor. 
Whether it be the strains of Nat King Cole's "Graduation Day" 
or Brahms' "Academic B'estival Overture" that reach your ear — 
by way of reminiscence — whether you, someone in your immed- 
iate family, or just a friend, is to participate in the ceremonies, 
remains incidental to the purpose of commencement. 

Commencement, or the more specif ijc word for the occasion, 
graduation, is an observance that has - retained its importance 
cilice the hbnofed gymnasium Schools ^of A^ and Sparta. 
'Graduates today can compare in many ways to those who exper- 
ienced the ceremony in that remote culture. In philosophy and 
purpose these graduates are identical; in procedure and circum- 
stance, however, they differ vastly. 

Today's graduate is faced with a complexity of indecision, no 
small part of uncertainty and the bewiMerment of an unprece- 
dented situaticn in an independent adult life. Graduation is then 
merely the conclusion of formal training which aims to prepare 
.the individual for the labcwious task of LIVING. Graduation thus 
implies more of a beginning than an ending, as we usually asso- 
ciate the word. What could make this more clear than a defini- 
tion of the word commencement — ^'*the beginning".

Allis Bams First 
Meritorious Award 

To the Editor: 

There was a hit song a few years 
back that had something to say about 
a million dollar b»by In a five liid 

icn cent store. 

If what I heard recently is true, 
and I have no reason to doubt the 
sou!'c6, we have a five and t«i cent 
Eer.ior in a million dollar school. 

My experience here at Mansfield 
means k lot to nle; and I make no 
apologies when I say that most of the 
instructors here are tops in thieir 
field. JQf. course there are little irri- 
tations, but on the whole there is no 
reason why any student who is capa> 
ble and ^ilUng can not get top 
notch teachW trailing tast(e. ' 

. By mere . chance 1 . was ^ recently -I 
visiting a certain person, not con- 
nected with the college. In the 
crursf? of our cohversation my friend 
began deriding the. college. I listened 
patiently as I heard this Mansfield 
resident tell how Dean Long was a 
small time sleuth playing cops and 
robbers with some overly watched 
college boy s. Junior high, I was 
informed, is a place where bedlam 
reigns when inexperie'noed student 
teachers are left in charge of classes. 
At about this point I interrupted 
to ascertain my fH^ld'S sOUCCe Of i^i- 

"Why", quoth he, "a senior male 
•-'udent was at our house the other 
night. He said that MSTC is a five 
and ten cent college." 

I promptly* reminded my misin- 
formed frlmd that we usually see in 
ethers Just^^bput'wlwt Pijr-^ 
selves. The point is we seem to have 
a five end ten cent student whp is 
.<;r~*»how going to graduate from our 
million dollar , school. And what do 
vou betfc he is the guy who will holler 
Inidest for high salaries and teacher 
r-ghts when he seeks employment. 
T' is his kind who make it hard for 
♦hose w)M) deserve -break. - 

It must take a lot of guts to ask 
the taxpayers to pay a living wage 
for tetfbhing their children when 
one has been trained in a "five Md 
ten c«)t college." Perhaps 4ilir '^MiT 
repret 8hoal«r~be thift %^^«9nl®'Z7wliah 
such an attitude did not leave 
earlier. •

See you In Chur^ 

As Good As You Like It < 

During this year much attention has rightfully been given to 
honor the people who have been directly responsible for the 
gTOwth of this college. Namej such s^s Elliott,. Monj-is, Allen, 
vBe»ch and Board should cany a new signi^cance to all Mansfield 
students; . 

But alas! Even colleges ITve^^lottgh Centennials. W the last 
issue of the FLASHIJGHT f or -thkMBear, IVfens^ield State Teach- 
ers College is found waiting at the threshold of a new century. 
Imagine, if you will, the size of this campus by 2057 if the steady- 
growth evidenced in the past is maintained. If potential hJ^; 
are to be considered) then the steadily increadng enrollment 
would guarantee mui^ forUier exiMUision. ' 

Whether large or small in enrollment, Mansfield can be as great 
a college as the students want to make it. As important in the 
future as it has been in the past is the attitude of each of the 
students. Every time a answer is given when asked for com- 
mittee work, the right attitude is displayed; . 

The rifl^t attitude and progress go hand in hand. During the 

summer when thoughts of li^nsfield State Teachers Colleg^ re- 
turn, think of the next one hundred years.. Arriving back at 
school with an attitude of "I'll do my best regardless" would 
guarantee that the second century of learning at Mpjisfield is off 
with a tfood^start. :

There is no doubt about it, spring 

"is the most musical season of the 
year in more ways than one. Here at 
Mansfield ther6 is strong evidence 
to support this fact by the many 
exQ^eat solo recitals given by the 
members of pur Munlc D^partoient 
these past few weeks. tRie prepara- 
tiow tor one of these programs de- 
mands a tremendous amount of 
work on the part of the performer. 
We would especially like to extend 
our congratulations to Gail Kuhns, 
Judith Smith, Phyllis Jaquish, Barry 
Vannuaker, William l^cklebank and 
Donald Snider wha have i^cbttt^~ 
gi^eh their farewell recitals. 

Ai .1 reminisce over the musical 

events of this past year here at 
Mansfield, I would like to express 
the appre^tion of the entire 8tu> 
deM b«idy to xnir Gomnumily Or- 

chestra for their three very fine 
concerts, to our 'Ckmcert Band which 
has' presented two excdl^ concerts 
here along with being on tour, to our 
Advanced Chorus for their inspiring 
Christmas and Easter performances, 
to John B. Little and Jack M. Wil- 
cox for their outstanding recitals, 
and for the enjoyable concerts giv- 
en by our Woodwind Quintet, Brass 
Eto«nble and The Renaissance Sing- 
ers. - 

Here at Mansfield we have the op- 
portunity of enjoying a phase of 
culture which few other colleges 
can offer. These niusical performan- 
ces not paly enable us to enrich 
our cultural foundation but also af- 
ford us ' immeasurable pleasure. It 
is therefore certainly to our advan- 
tage to attend as many of these musi- 
cal' events as possible'.

The selection &£ Joe Witowski as 
ti e Athlete of the Year for 1957 
awarded Mansfield's most talented 
athlete the highest honor .of this ix^ 
siitution. Tovsay that Joe des^ved it 
would be the understatemerit of the 

scholar, and a friendly gentleman, 
Sportscript takes this opportunity to 
extend to Joe its heartiest congratu- 
lations and sincerest good wishes for 
his future yeara 

iThere are some other guys around 
here who also did a good job this past 
>ear^many of them for the fourth 
year. We students here at Mansfield 
sometimes take our athletes for grant- 
ed and fail to realize that each of 
them spends a good deal of his si>are 
time preparing for the finished pro- 
duct which we see during intercolleg- 
iate contests. And although this* ool-, 
umn and the Mudent body in general " 
tend to criti2e th^, (most of the 
time it is Justified criticism) these 
athletes should be commended for do- 
ing as well as they did. All of them, of 
course, cannot be mentioned here but 
some of the better deeds of the past 
year are worth renewihg in. our mem- 
ories. • 

The football season was one of the 
most thrilling in many years. We had 
Hal Hackett and Ted Wichert up front 
for the last time. The two bi^^ guys 
gave many good ,j-j>^rforma'nces and 
Te*d, especially, lA^as the'.outstanding 
player in at least two of the contests. 
The center of the line was solid with 
4oe Witowski in there - - Joe gave his 
natural ability a good workout during 
the course of the seascm. Don Kline 
did an effective Jo4> at the end of tiic i 
liUMr hi» fourth strt ^ ig h t var s ity — 8ea= ~ 
.son. Jack Zimmeirman finished his 

college football career with ■ a good 

There, are a couple of gridders 
however, who did king-sije* jobs and 
who deserve special motion. Bill 
Dewey was as good 'an. end as any 
seen during the course of the season. 
His douWed barreled offensive abil- 
^ w ill be remembered fbr many 
Ifnan - - a better pass receiver we had 
iWt and some of his downfield blocks 
left fans talking to thennselves. 

And there was the littlest guy on 
the squad - - Bucky Price. This kid 
did what the big guys couldn't da. As 

.1 ■■■ ^- " 

fast a back as we had, Bucky used 
his speed and deceptiveness • to gain 
m^ny a long run for the Mounts dur- 
ing the season. An adept ball liandler, 
he ran the T forniat'.on weli trosca the 
a . terback position and had th e best 
f ng av era gtj jjtf Um g quafl. — De- 
fcisively, Bucky threw his weight 
around like he owned the field and 
■crrod many an opposing runner with 
a vicious tackle. ' 

Then came the basketball season. 
Ted, Wichert came Aip off the gridiron 
and showed that he had some little 
ability under the hoop. - - big Ted 
turned in some sterling performances. 
Bill Palmer helped the clulb as a spot 
player. Joe-Lhikoski got the Mounts 
off to a good start but slacked off 
after the Christmas recess: And, al- 
t»-otigh he s^w only limited action 
throughout the year, Joe won his 
fourth varsity letter in ballketbaU. 

Thi^^story of the baslcetball season 
can be summed up in two words-Joe 
Witowski. Only after observing such 
a player throughout the season can 
ore appreciate his outstanding ability 
.?nd value to the team. Joe led the 
team in everything except shoe laces 
and can be acclaimed as the main 
f u t r in the Mansfield ba8ketl>all 
succes ?. . ^ 

And now the Mounts are in the 
midst of another baadball season. 
Jack Zimmerman Is back for his " 
fourth consecutive season. Zimmy 
had good years through his career 
and is continuing in that respect. 
"Old-reliable" Bill Dewey is back at 
first base also for the fourth year. 
Bill has never l>een outstanding on 
.the basel:>all squad but he is as de- , 
p o ndabl e lu i any o n e around. He 
guards his post faithfully and his 
batting average is us'ually a respect- 
able '.300 6r better. Then there is Joe 
Witowski (again), a converted catch- 
er this year doing a very good job 
in right field. 

Hal Hackett could be 8 great pitch-

One coxUd tell that Spring was ap- 
proaching as people ' were madly 

dashing to the tennis court just to ^et 
there before someone else did. The 
peak of popularity in this sport here 
at Mansfield is due to the new paved 
court. A day never passes but whiat 
here are several people waithig to 
;et a crack at it Although many of 
"le newcomers hit homers, even the 
lirst day out, our. school has several 
ttudents wo are very adept at putting 
he ball iujst where they want it. A^ 
lays pasKd n&any impitovemen,ts 
lould be seen, especially . in the ones 
yho were iiew at tbS ; sport 
Because of the increasing interest 
n the sport, M. E. "Spotts" Decker 
. !,nd Bob Keenan organized a tounja- 
:went^-fiye _ entries _ were -xecelved. 

ment for all who wished to enter, 
and the matches began on Friday, 
May 3. The first round was complet- 
ed on Wednesday, May 8. The tour- 
nament matches are determined by 
the best of three, six game wtit. 

Seven entries ^redeived first round 
byes and moved into the secoAd 
round automatically. The lucky sevi- 
en were Cuthbert, Loftus, Denning, 
Witowski, StilwellV Eno . ^nd Hansen. 
The first round elimtnalions were a^ 
follows: White overtiirew A|iadre«i«» 
Keenan- defeated' Page, Drew over-

This gay has been running around 
ind hollering encouragement for the 
past four spring seasons. When the 
lirst ro'bin lights in Mansfield, Billy 
Farrell grabs the spikes and heads for 
Smythe Park ball field. He has be- 
coma ai^ institution on the BCount 
baseball ^quad and will be sorely 
mis^d next year. He is Mansfield's 
i rst-quality ball player and has been 
selected to be the FLASHLIGHT'S 
first-quality Athlete of the Month. 

Baseball is much more than a game 
for Bill; it has become a genUe obses- 
jion to him and he works at it with 
an intense desire of hnprovement By 
far the best glove man on the Mount 
s^uad. Billy is having trouble with the 
stick this season but figures to come 
through Wore very long. He is pro- 
bably tlie beat little competitor on 
the diamond, and rates with last 
-year's Benny Watkins as one of Mans- 
f'elcl's all time greats in that respect. 

Bpfore his f roubles begm this year, 
Bill jvas the Mount's be t stick man 
• nd was noted for his ability to get on 
hsis^ or come through in the clutch. He 
is a punch-type hitter; always crowd- 
ing the . |>late» and almost^ always 
mef»ting ^ biOl «(Rinr^y. Most pit- 
chers coijiiplain that he is tough to 
p^tch to and Very peldom does a good 
.n'^^h got p'ist him. He has a good eye, 
wh'ch accounts for many bases on 
balls, and his timing of pitches leaves 
I'ttle to be desired. Always alert, he 
is one of Mansfield's smartest base 
runners. Bill ia probably the best 
t)untcr on the squad and has an espe- 
cially effective drag bunt. 

6h the defense. Billy plays the hot 
rorner like he was bom there. As 
"old Dl«" says, a better third-sacker 
I have not seen nowhere." He takes 
the hard smashes and the bunts with 
equal adeptness. He thinks fast, 
moves faster, and loolcs good in every 
situation. On the bunt,- h^ can. field 
and throw the ball in tiie mtt» mo- 
tion while the hot OQet he ttBfig Any- 
way he can and recuperates in time 
to throw his m^n out. The routine 
plays are Just that for Bill - routine; 
His toughest assignment ia guarding. 
^ttdninMie agitost 'iBtm high . ftjixm 

pikes of o|ijposing baae runners. In 
the Bloomsburjf game alone, he got 
four Huskies sliding into third base. 

Because he is the Mount's best all 
around player, Bill was selected to be 
this year's field captain. And that se- 
lection has paid off time and again as 
the take-charge guy has handled each 
diif xcult situation in . a professional 
mEnner.. He hel»r '"out--his pitcher, 
adds strength to the infield, and 
li oves the outfield according to the 
batfer at the plate. He is mild-man- 
nered but firm with the umpires and 
tan handle tho coaching jobs in a 
smart but effective manner. 

Aside from his baseball interests, 
Bill is active in many and various 
campus affairs. With majors in Geo- 
g aphy and Social Studies, his time 
is pretty well occupied but he streng- 
th ensi his background in these areas 
as a member of the Geography Club 
and Fraternity, Gamma Theta Up- 
silon. His interests in the Day Stu- 
dents' organization iS high as is his 
1. embership in the "M" Qub. 


After slrailing by 6 runs going into- 

the eighth inning, the Mansfield State 
leachers came back to def^t Cort- 
land STC 14-13 in Mansfield's home 
opener on Saturday afternoon, A 
booming six run rally in the eighth 
tied the score 13-13. The Mounts lei- 
lowed it up with another run in the 
ninth to win the game. 
• It took four hours and ten minutei, 
seven pitchers, and twenty four ball 
players to finally wind up the affair. 1 
There v/as a total of 33 hits, 14 walks, 
seven errorsi, and three batters hit 
by pitchers. The sluggers -wsre at 
their best as they banged out 9 6xtra 
base hits for a total of 22 bases. Both 
sides scored freely and frequently as 
none of the pitchers seemed too ef- 

Rich Warters started on the mound 
for the Mounts. He waa, the best of 
thi local pitcbusn. holding Cortland 
• sco^less for -4 innings. He got in 
troifble bi the fifth and was removed 
with a bases loaded situation. Hurst 
Mitten came on and was greeted wit.i 
a tremendous triple to unload the 
sacks. Hal Hackett pitched the -last 
2 2/3 innings and received credit for 
the -win. 

All of the Mansfield squad contri- 
buted^ to the victory and all got izUo 
tha hit column. Bob Leslie was the 
hero of the day as he walked to 
lorce in the winning run. He had pre- 
viously walked on 5 Other Occasioqa 
and had a base hit tot a perfect day 
at the plate. Dan Bills came throug^i 
with 4 hits in 6 at bat; Jack Zun- " 
merman had two hits including a 
i double; Hurst Mitten had Mansfield's 
longest drive with a long triple ti* 
right Bill Dewey hit safely 3 timia 
whUe Joe Witowski and Jim Merrttt 
got important singles late in the 
game. " • , 

The Cortland attack was limited 
to 12 hits but 7 of them were of the ' 
extra base variety. Their y 12 hits 
were good for 22 bases which, consid- 
ermg they received 7 free passes, ac- 
counted , for their 3 big innings. Bob 
Shoemaker was top slugger for the 
visitors as he hammered out 2 triples 
a double, and a single in five official 
trips. His 4 Tuns batted in was also 
hi^ for the day. Joe Van Earden, 
Col-tland's fourth pitcher of record, 
took the brunt of Mansfield's big 
i^nth inning rally and was the loe- " 
ing pitcher.

Mansfield, Pennsylvania October 1957 

Elementary Serge 

i .. Yes, ^elementary indeed! In regards to the 
English language this attitude will soon be 
prevalent in Russia, as well as among her 
sister satellites. For today there. can be little 
doubt that the study of English is extensive 
in thirSovlet tMcatT" - ~ * . 

America's daily newspapers and periodicals 
frequei^tly carry unbiased features on Com- 
munisjbic methods of instilling Communistic 
education into the minds of children living in 
the Soviet reahn. The articles promulgate 
the fact that basic English is taUght to the 
Russian children in the elementary grades. 
At "cultural centers" and other "liberal or- 
ganizations" English is avidly pursued by all 
members of the complex Russian caste sys- 
■ tern. In some instances this study is compul- 
sory; in others it is done out of . individual in- 
centive. We read these articles with interest, 
but what do we do about them then? 

In the September 8th issue of the NEW 
. prescient conservative in the field of edilca- 
- tion, advanced (in a debate with William Kil- 
patrick on Progressive Education) the teach- 
ing of classical and living languages in our 
educational system. Mr. Bestor is of the opin- 
ion that Greek and Latin, as welt as Romantic 
Spanish, or Tei!it§nic German should be 
taught in our secondary schools in order to 
increase "intellectual awareness." Alarmingly 
enough, there is not one public school in the 
United States that even offers, let alone com- 
pels the study of the,( Russian language. 
Bestor is also - a devotee of mathematical 
sciences and stresses science's augmenting 
demand for qualified personnel in 
fields such as guided missiles, nucl^r deviel- 

However, if the cold war warms, who is 
— going to do the necessary translation of scien- 
tifikj, go^mmental, and. military* writings? 
Do we even have enough capable translators 
to handle cold war inteUigence? Perhaps all a 
O^ussian spy has to do to injure secrecy is to 
write by hand in uncoded Russian. 

Russian is rightly said to be a difficult 
language. The alphabet looks unsympathetic, 
the declensions^ and conjugations complex; 
and yet nearly two hundred 0nillion people, 
most of whom-«re far from being intellect- 
uals, speak it natot^s^ as we speak English. 
One has no need to be learhed;>or especially 
gifted to succeed in- doing what a young ,5- or 
6-year old J^^OUJIK dp^^ 

Until our Government places the study of 
Russian in our school, system, or at least 
makes such a study conipulsory in all higher 
institutions of learning, we cannot continue 
to live under the assumptfon that we are do- 


sdministration very reoeptiv« and 
wUling^to give any logical idea a try, 
.or point out with valid reason why it 
wouldn't woYk. Rumor has it that 
Student Council will soon install' sug- 
gestion boxes. Let's get our pencils 

As is obvious, there is no Veterans' 
news of pertinence; however, I would 
like to extend a welcome to all vet- 
erans who have recently joined our 
ranks. Besides being my fancy, this 
column' Serves as l>ctive V. A. 

voice <m the MSTC campus. Remem- 
ber that our V. A. counselor, Fred 
Jupenlaz," is. both willing and able to

€md its way of life. As future' teachers of 
America's next generation— the generation 
that will suffer mbst in the event of a World 
War III — and as the presei*vers of the idea of 
Democracy under possible cond.itions of. Com- 
munistic oppression, i^ is especially our re- 
sjwnsibility to realize the importance of, and 
do something about, teaching Russian in our 
schools. ✓ 

If the Red Bear decides to f oh;e its so-call- 
ed secrets upon us, and re-enforces its,strik*> 
ing power with, the knowledge of our tongue, 
tiien we will be at a terrifying disadvantage. 
,It is time that we face this sham. Until we do, 
we continue to live in self-deceit.

As usual each year when we re- 
turn to Mansfield, one can hear var- 
ious . and Sundry, gripes emanating 
ijrbm thie student body concerning tiie 
edllege j^^0oa. 

I, too, have been guilty of such 
criticism and cian clearly see its 
justification; that is, if you do not 
like macaroni and cheese you have 
a legitimate gripe. But, how many 
oi these gripes stem from a single 
meal and for no good reason are ex- 
tended to include' the ei^tire menu? 
Many . " ' ^ 

'. In comMsaring Vhs conipLeaci^ of aa 
inetitutknial menu, we miist taloei in^ 
to accoimt two important factoid the 
budget by which the food is purchas- 
ed, and the difficulty in preparing 
food for soma five h,un4red students 
three times daily. The budget, while 
rig^, is enaatOi \,to provide nourish- 
ment Who can 'ertticize this? 0))ly 
the pet^xle who would eat ,«hanilnirg- 
ers and drink coke lAuee times a

problem is, of course, preparation. 
We could employ Chef Boy-Ar-Dee. 
He wculd probably demand a salary 
that would equal that of five facul^ 
.members plus an agreement to serve 
spaghetti, three times a dsyl

urally entail another raise in fees. 

NORMALLY, when you don't feel 
that something is right, you voice 
your views in a constructive marmer 
ih an attempt to correct it. This is a 
NORMAL SCHCOL (at least it used 

to be) and I'm sure angr sujtgestionf^ Patrida Najaka, Barbara I^'Tess, BlEar-

Gripe! Gripe! Gripe! Varyingr from faint 
murmurg to noisy grumbles, griping: has be- 
come an MSTC pastime, and much of it ap- 
pear s to be d amaging. ' 

Some £onns of this "diversion" are healthy 
and helpful; these shbuM be cultivated. At 
the same time, the lower forms need a heavy 
dose of weed killer. The "legal" complaint is 
usually accompanied by a constructive sug- 

George Grumble comes out of assembly 
griping as usual, '*That was^a^ dead prograni. 
What a waste of time!" But does George 

arouse his stilled brain cells to action — to 
offer some way to improve the assembly? 
X)t course not, but his grumbling affects ttie 
. other studfmta,^ and Jtbey^ too,^ look_down^ upon . 
the program. 

Frida^ J^i^ Gmtf^ a^yte the college 
movie ai^ again' sounds Git, "That picture 
was in my honTe town when I was still in 

three-comereds !" (George has paid, through 
the student activities fee, for movies, sports 
events, and numerous other events and ma- 
terials from which he may acquire much en- 
tertainment, recreation, and in cases, a more 
complete education; yet he has passively 
protested the "enormous" $20 activities fee 
and seeks no real improvement). 

George Grumble coUld be helpful. Finding 
something on campus that does not meet his 
standards, he could think! Investigation, 
thought, and suggestion — these three are 
powerful weapons, and George could use 
them to good advantage. George's sugges- 
tion must be beneficial else It will not be 
acceipted; however, having tried to better the 
existing situation, George deserves the pro- 
. verbial "pat on the back." 

A steel bar has always been a better lever 
than a stream of hot air, but ste^, incor- 
rectly aimed, can effect much damage. Grip- 
ing has been called a y^y of letting off 
steam — must it be received as a devastiifaUlf 
blast? Better, it should be prbjiec^ed iitii # 
strong isolated receptacle. ^ ^ 

Let us all heed Theodore Roosevelt's ad- 
vice: "Speak softly, but carry a big stick."

plaiis for reviewing-, changing, expanding and 
improving programs whether they deal withr- 
the instructional area, extrn «urricular acti- 
uities, day student affairs, athletics, public 
-relations or any of the facets which form our 
college life. I stFongi^ welcome these sngges- 
tions as our adrail&trative people, faculty 
and students- begiii to re-evaluate class pro- 
grams and other activities. 

In. the extra ctirricular area your student 
leaders are struggling hard to balance thie 
budgetl While in Washington and Harrisburg 
I attended many budget hearings. It seems to < 
me that your leaders have accepted their bud- 
get tasl^ with as much, if not more, regard for 
the responsibilities involved than I i have ob- - 
served in many legislators. This is remark- 
able, in view of the fact that this is the first 
year they have taken part in the budget mak- 
ing process. Their task is difficult because of 
rising costs and student requests for more 
expanded programs. 

As we move further into the academic year 
I hope you will continue to examine, explore 
and discuss both your educational and extra - 
curricular life here. Don't stop acquiring 
knowledge when you leave the classrocnn! 
What you receive in class is only the spark i 
which kindles the flame; Find some addition- 
al fuel in library reading '*above and beyond 
the call of duty", in discussions with faculty 
and with your fellow students, and in your 
textbooks. Only then will the overpowering 
flame of knowledge fully consume you and, 
rising from the ashes like the famous Phoe-

new personality Indicating the i^^unortatity j

ector of Campus Schools, Student 
Teaching and Placement, has said, is 
"to give the student a pe^iispective on 
.the total Job oi JxAcbing." The stu- 
dent wiU be closer to the kind of sit- 
uation thait he will have to face later 
because he will be hi the building 
most of the school day arid will meet 
more situations that are likely to de- 
^ velop during a typicsd day in a public 
school. He will also oe able to devote 
more continuous attaqtion to the job 
of teaching.

moving down frwn "the hiU" into the

As- a part of Mansfield's Campus 
School system, the Junior High School 
is relatively new, for it was not set 
up until 1921. On the other hand, the 
l^iementary School, ' known for over 
half a century as the Sfodel School, 
aates back to the 1800's. 

Those changes now taking place in 
Maiiblicld's system of teacher educa- 
tion and those planned for the future 
are merely part of a long process of _ 
evolution that is almost as old as -the' 
college itself. Over the coming .ye&prs, 
with changing, conditions and the con-

^ • Itichard Harxington 

One of the rarest phenomena in the 
Uni.ed States today is the person who 
has not been touched by the current 
"ao-it-yourself fad. This craze has 
swept the country, creeping into al- 
most every field of endeavor, with 
a constant ' <daim tliat the common 
layma^ can do , a prof esaional job 
by shnply following the directions. 

The originator of do-it-youradf^ has 
been lost in obscurity; however, the 
whole thing seems to have started 
when the prices of home-ibuilding be- 
gan to climb above the reach of the 
common workman. Someone decided 
that everything for the home, from 
kitchen cupboards to entire rooms, 
could be packaged, wrapped^ and sent 
to the ordinary layman who, by fol- 
various other colors just as there are lowing the dir^tio pa caiyft i^l y , cmilA 

Hats & Women 

' Jo StUwell 

Women and Iwts go together like 
ham and egg^. There are big hats and 
little hats, broad hats and slim hats; 
women come in the same assorted 
sizes and shapes. There are black hats, 
brown hats, red hats, yellow hats, and 

students concerned Coward the teaidi- 
ing set-Up novT&i effect? Dr. Wilson 
reports that, according to a survey 
made about foiur years ago, practically 
all students preferred that they do 
their teaching on the basis just insti- 
— — tuted. As time goes on, the new pro- 
cedure will be carefully evalttatad~ae* 
cording to its effectiveness. - " 


The Elementary and Secondary De- 
'partments are not the only ones that 
plan their teaching on the "block" 
basis. For some time, the Home Eco- 
nomics Department has been sending 
students out to schools in the vicinity 
to teach for nine-week periods. 

The students in the Musjc Depart- 
ment l^tU conttnaerthis year to corn- 

heads and greyheftds. 

All assorted liats can go with all 
assorted women. There are hats with 
bows, hats with ribbons, hats with 
jewels and so forth - anything from a 
pet dtiamele on to a preciou s jew^ 


' ' " 

"Women are complimented, criti- 
cized, argued with and laughed at be- 
cause of^ theUr hais, but they . take 
their ^tand. If a hat costs |S0, ii is. 
worth every penny of it to its "Owner, 
even if her husband can see nothing 
but a bunch of feathers. A hat may 
cost anywhere from a few dollars to a 
few hundred dollars. 

Hats are bold, hats are petite, hats 
are. sophisticated^and hats are demure,

The fad then invaded the radio and 
television field, the hot-rod field, the 
model field, and many others. One 
writer even suggested a "Do-It-Your-

It would- contain a folding pulpit frcmi 
which "naturef* would preach, and, 
last but not least, a miniature hjfhm-

At Mansfiela, we are limited to the 
amount of money we can spend i>n a 
float, imd that limit liSquite low. The 
deiignhig and construmon is strictly 
a .eooperational effort, and the finished 
creations are far from the "million-

Feature* editws are strange people, 

and Leonard Titudes Is no exception. I 
got a note from him the other day 
about an article for the FLASHLIGHT 
ihis nole he said that I was to write 
an article about "anything" and have 
it ready to submit in three days. 

There was a blank apace after the, 
word "anything;" so I iiOtaght he 
might have . iell_jQut~sQma~ woidSr-I - 
knew from past experience, however, 
that one never questions editors — 
feature or otherwise — one just writes. 
I also knew that I could never find 
Len in time to get my assignment 
cleared up; it just isn't possible to 
find a feature editor when you want 
him. If he wants you, it is a horse of a 
different color; lie, will break up €»xd 
games, interrupt your sle^ oar , even 
climb to the watnr tower to find you. 


I saw Barb Press, the Managing Edi- 
tor, gd by; but she had problems of 
her own— two football players and a 
baseball player. I just didn't dare ask 
her about this assignment. Managing 
editors are funny about their problems^ 
and IbU three of- theae were Mgger 
tha n t 

My roonpmates were no help either. 
Being avid tennis iaaa, they were 
watching a ghrls' gym class playing 
tennis. I could teU that my "roomies" 
were avid fans by their comments: 
"Look at that form," ^d "Isn't that a 
nice swlngr • 


' So I Just had to write about "any- 
thing." Ah hai an idea strikes me 
(Note to Mr. Yaudes: Even writers 
have ideaSi so don't look ao shodoad.) 
I will run' right over to the ' Ubcttriloia 
and see if they can help me. Boiwavar, 
I fear that it is too late; the lHWary is 
closed and I am right back wHere I 
was three days ago. (I work rather 
slowly, you see, taking a lot of tlma 
for reflection.) 

All I've done is waste all this space 
and I still haven't written about "any- 
thing." There is one consolation, how- 
ever I'll get to see Mr. Yaudes now. 
Only now he'll be hunting fbr me. and

The addition of big, tough Jim Tal- 
erico has been one of the most pleas- 
ant aSiuprises to Coach: Stebnade this 
season. A consciencious studeut, Jim 
forgave football last seasos in order to 
get a good start at his studies. And he 
did well enough academically to make 
possible his desire to play football. He 
seems to be a sure bet to see a lot of 
^c^n_this_season as well as in the fu- 
ture Mansfield picture. 

Coach Stelmack has had Jim work- 
ing at both the guard and halfback 
positions. His strength and good q^faed 
help do a tremendous job at both poat- 
tions. As defensive lineman, Jim has 
shown an outstanding ^tituda for 
crash hig through the line and over 
taking the opposing ball carrier. This 
ability is especially effective with an 
eight man line and is a potent weapon 
against passes and delayed line bucks. 

An offensive guard needs to have 
speed and strength when he is pUUad 
out of the line for blocking iHirpoisas. 
Jhn fills the Job capjtbly.jand can usu- 
ally t>e counted on to get hia man out 
of the play. As halfback, Jim has yet 
to see intercollegiate action, but he 
runs well in practice. His off tackle 
slants and middle line drives are pic- 
tures of hard charging with knees high. 

A 1956 graduate of Bradford High 
School, Jim got plenty of fooUndl 
experience with the tough^ data A 
school. With oth«r ^Mtts intarasta «■- 
padally wrestling.^ and a v«ry good 
attitude, only succeis can ba predlctad

knew Jim quite well, 1 would like tof 
goffer a small tribute to the little guy 
/ith the big heart. 
I met 'Jim for the first time on the 
Jtball- field.' They were having an 
atraSQuad scrimmage and Jim was 
ining from the left halfback posi- 
.ion. Just as I arrived, his team got 
/lim loose and the little scatbaek ran 
;;hrou|(h the Mccnadary and on to

Of him this season 

Kings College 

- The best , performance in yearsi 
They- realty ^ustl&d! They looked like 
they wanted to win! N.iver saw a 
more . deiermined football team! 
These weta just a few of the com- 
ments tos.sed around Saturday night 
when Mansfield upset a favored 
Kings CoUega squad 13-7 on Uie 
Wilkes-Barre gridirco. Tue' Mounts 

thrilled a near-cdpacity homecoming 
— 4hrwij^w4th a tremindous^ show' ^ 
*■ offensive and defensive strength. 

Thd first quarter ended a scoreless, 
but hard loughi ♦-draw. Neitaer team 
cculd get anything dose to a sustain- 
ed drive started as action remamed 
around midfield. Midway through the 
second period, however, Mansfield 
began to move. Short gains by Jim 
Talerico and Larry Biddle ^ ale up 
yardagj and fiisi downs. A 'beautiful 
pass from FranK Frontino to Frank 
juunnigan covered 45 yayrds and put 
vhe ball on tiie Kings 20. Another 
l< iontmo pass to Dan Ceccoli . ;u|ras 
good for 7 more yards and in 2 plays 
cecepli went off tackle lor the^score. 
Jim Brightbill converted the point 
alter touchdown and Mansfield led 
7-0 at the hall. 

Loth teams got a break or two in 
the tiiird quarter but neither could 
take advantage of them.A good punt 
by t le King's Frank Alansky had 
^vian^field deep Jp? its own .territor y 
' fab the fourth qoslrter got underway^ 
The Mounts failed to move the ball 
in three downs and Bucky White was 
lorced to kick. The punt traveled only 
30 yards, however, and a good run- 
bacK gave Kings possession on the 
Mounts 15. Three players later the 
same Alansky carried the final two 
yards for the Kings score. Alansky 
also converted to tie the score at 7-7. 

But Mansfield was not to be deni- 
ed. After receiving the kickoff on 
their own 4 yard line, tlie Moimts 
married 78 yards before losing the 
ball on the Kings 18 yard line. Sam 
Kreig and Irv. -Klinger did some 
beautilul running during this drive. 
Two plays after losing possession, 
Mansfield"s big ■ Walt Millard tore 
the ball loose and fell.oa it to re- 
gain posyession. In three plays Irv 
Klinger had tbe ball across the goal 
line and Blah^eld was ahead to stay. 

Every player on the Mantf idd 
squad contributed a lot to the <vic- 
tory. Wklt Millard and Gib Moore 

were very tough. Larry Bildle played 
the entire game at left haltback and 
did a tremendous job. Dan Bills, 
Frank Frontino, Dan Ceccoli and 
Frank Dunnigan were outstanding. 
Sam Kreig and Jim Talerico were 
exceptional at fullback. Dick Allen 
plugged the middle; Tom -Ayres, Ken 
Cruse, Joe Comey, Bob^Fleclc, Bucky 
White, and Bob Leslie completely 
cut hustled their tough opponents. 
And certainly not too much can be 
said for the job turned in , by Irv 
Klinger., . . the kid was all over the 

A huge throng of alumni, students, 
and local sports aithusiasts are ex- 
pected to be on hand this Saturday 
afternoon wheil the Moimtaineer 
gridders open the home season on 
the Smythe Park field. Homecoming 
Day and the Bloomaburg Huskies 
will arrive in Mansfield sometime 
Satiu-day morning and both should 
have the litig Icnocked out of them 
by the day's end. 

Bloomaburg -Inui been a deadly op- 
ponent for Mansfield fOr the past 
decade or two. A local success would 
be most welcome to both students 
and alumni. Last year the Huskies 
completely swamped the Moimts in.. 
the worst drubbing of the year. A 
venge(ful Coach Stelmack will have 


Gridders Elect 
Biddle Co-Captain 

The man to watch for in tbe Mduil- 
taineer backfield this year is Larry 
Biddiet the^ scrappy Halfback from 
Canton, Penna. Larry, only a Junior, 
is playing his second year at the 
first string, left halfback position. 
Although he's not the fastest man 
on the team, his past experience, 
his kcM'ii eve for quick opening, and' 
his determination make 'him ■ one , of 
the sparkplugs in the Mounts Ihieup. 
His ability and popularity were 
- Shown when hig t oaf n ma te s pidced 
him to be co-captain of this years' 
squad. ' - 

Tie Mill<„T.s-ville game last year is 
jui't one example of Larry's ability. 
Larry was a thorn in the side of 
the visiting teachers that day. He ac- 
counted for several first downs and 
then it happened; I^rry broke 
thrpugh the line, scampered through 
the opposing secondary and traveled 
eighty yards for the longest run of 
the year. Against Lycomdng this 
year Larry proved his versatility as 
he pulled in two passes from the 
quarterback and saved the Mounts 
from a complete shellacking by the 
out-practiced, out-sta rr ed Lycoming 
team. ; " 

Before coming to Mansfield' Larry 
contributed his talent to a very suc- 
cessful Canton High School squad, 
where he played ball with Walt Mil- 
lard, Tom Ayres, -and Ed Kieffer, 
probably the best halfback ever to 
graduate from that school. 

Aside from lys foofKaPx interests, 
Larry is active in m'any and" various 
campus affairs. With majors in So- 
cial Studies and Geography his time 
is pretty well occupied, but he 
strengthens his background in these 
areas as a member of the Geography 
Club and the Geography Fraternity, 
Gamma Theta Upsilon. He is also an 
active member of the Newman Club 
end the "M" Club. 

his ohfij^]^ at their peak, for tills is 
the 'one! he'd really like to. win. , 

Then the parents of the college 
students will have an opportimity to 
see the Mounts in action the follow- 
ing Saturday, again at Smythe Park. 
This time the East Stroudsburg 
Teachers will afford the oppositiOBitil 
This should prove to be anoth^' 
tough test for the Stelmackmen. 
Stroud lulled the Mounts last year 
and ttiia year have already conquered 
rath«r fimnidable foes, it'll be tough 
to send the Parents' Day crowd 
home happy. , 

The Coach has indicated that he - 
will go along with his regular line of 
Dunnigan, Moore, Comey, Allen, 
Millard, Lehman, and White. The 
probable backfield combination wiU 
be Bills, Kreig, Biddle, and Klinger.

A familiar figure will be back at 
his tackle spot this year tor the 
MS'TC Mounties, in the person of 
one Walt Millard. For those unin- 

i Durhig the winter months Jim Walt, 180 pounds, was 

tudied some and played ^ little in- mamstays of Mansfield's 

ra-mural basketball. He hustied in forward wall last football season A 

he intra-mural leagues as much as j""""' student, Walt proved to be a 
ie did in^thiS inter-cOllegiale fobfbaU ^^^^^ °^ Mansfield's 

.ames. He jpdt around the tampus opponents in his past two seAsops, 

Iwtty: much and became friendly Particularly last season. 

Wth many pck)ple while particibat- 

ig in the various college functions, 

If one were to choose a single con- 
test, it would have to be the East 

fld people were att^racted to the Stroudsburg game of last season. In 

that particular contest, Big Walt, 
Canton's contribution to the colle- 
giate ranks, made a good slxiy per 
cent of all Mansfield's tackles. In 
the first half of that game East 
Stroudsburg netted a mere total oif 
minus on^ yard from scrimmage, due 
moJtly to the efforts of Walt. 

Although a big f^ow, Walt is de- 

ei'ivingljr fast; He is very quick in 
K -tting downfield befor? the runner 
to throw offensive blocks and de- 
fensive tackles. His actions are quick 
and sure. He is veiy seldom deceived 
by fancy half-backs. ' 

Walt recced his basic training at 
Canton Hi^Pschool and is well ver-' 
sed in the fundamentals of the game. 
In the year of his graduation, X954, 
he was vbted the most valuable 
player on that very successful high 
school team. Walt was one of the f aw 
to . bfr- n^med as a Flashlight Athlete 
of the Months 

Now a veteran of |he ^jollege wars, 
much rides on the big, strong shoul- 
ders Of Walt. He could be the main 
cog in a Very succesaful season.

Pajama Parade and Snalu Dance Held on Campu*. 


""Freshman initiation, ' which began 
Monday, September 9, launched the 
college careers of the 197 freshmen ot

fiUed ttie campus yrith the > Ulting 
istiains of "How Green I Am," cheers 
of "Hail Mansfield" with each stroke 
of the tower clock, and chants of 
*<Hey, All You Mmmtaineers." 

{^porting beanies and sandwich board 
StlDS-^l^g ziame, curriculum, home 
town, and 'sophomore buddy, the 
freshmen performed various sorts of 
odd Jobs for their sophomore buddies 
Buch as shining shoes, cleaning rooms, 
imd doing laundry. ' „ 

Initiation regulations were in effect 
from 7 a. m. - 5 p. m. Monday through 
Thursday, and from 7 a. m. - 11 p. m. 
on Friday and Saturday. 


On Friday evening, a pajama parade 
and snake dance were staged. Fresh- 
men in all types of sleeping attire pa- 
raded around the campus. Leading the 
group was a special attraction: a shoe- 
less young man in pajamas, a girl's 
jred nightgown and a polka-dotted 

jak^isAinir ^fteui^il^ t>^^ Satuzday's

freshmen offenders. Each offender 
received a "fair trial" from Prose- 
cuting Attorney Parker Allis, Defend-

Joseph Ennis. The sentences ranged 
from shaving water-filled balloons to 
feeding chbcolate {Qrrup-covered marsh- 
mallows to six hoys. ^

There is cne area in which many 
persons feel that it would rnt much 
bettef if. everyone would do-lt- them- 
selves. This is the area of schooiwork 
and study. Ife^goes without saying that 
cheating ^vadeK every Institution in 
some manner, but even here Mans- 
field is not affected as the larger 
schools 'are with an almost profes- 
sional "cheating system." Most of our 
students have a sense of deiermlna- 
tion and integrity that will not allow 
them to carry on such activities; they 
realize that future teachers must' "b^ 
top-notch citizens. ». - 


Creativentes and ability . are im- 
portant parts of living. /They may 
mean the difference between a tea- 
cher who can teach and a teacher 

who can keep the children occupied 
for six hours a day. They may mean 
the difference between a parent who 
can train his child to'' enjoy life and 
a parent \^o relies on the teievisicMi 
set for his child's training. 

We do not gain these characteristics 
only in our classroom attendance but 
in the whole of our college life. It has 
^een said many times that if a yoimg 
person wants lots of social activities 
and high living he should attend a 
large university, but if he wahts an 
education he shouid attend a small 
college. Mansfield is a small college; 
here, we receive an education and a 
knowledge of living. Part of this gain 
is surely due to the fact that we do- 
it-ourselves rather than rely On oUien. 


Cont&ued from page 3 

On large campuses most of the con- 
vocations are filled with hired enter- 
tainers; it is a mark of distinction to 
have a top vocalist or player at the 
Adiool. We are privileged to have in 
our midst many faculty members and 
students 'who can eqai^ tbese top en- 
tertainers where tident is concerned 
and we utilize them wherever and 
whenever we can. In the FLASH- 
XJGHT last springthere was a colunm 
in which the following question was 
asked: "When is Mansfield going to get 
a name band for a dance?" We do not 
need one when we have such groups 
available as played in the Phi Mu As- 
sembly. Students in large schools are 
"assoued" as much as $15 per couple

Would you like to be on the FLASH- 
LIGHT staff? Dcn't let the fact that 
you can't write stop you. It didn't me. 
In order to encourage you in writing 
for the paper, here are five basic 
rules which if followed will help you 
to become a better writer. 
Bule I. Acquire a large vocabulary. 
This is a must for any journalist. 
Always keep a dictionary on hand. 
(It may be difficult to write this 
way but you'll get used to it.) 
Most words and their meanings can 
be remembeied easily if you Icnow 
their derivations and' their uses. 
For ejtample: 

This is a unique town, Latin 
(Unus, one and equus, horse.) He 
in~ the auditorium, Latin 
(Audio, hear and Taurus, the bull.) 

The usefulness of a large vocabr 
ulary can be seen in the following 
excerpt from Senator .-StdiwantK'a

is matriculate. And this you won't 
even believe. For the past five years 
i your sons and daughters up there 
have been forced to use the same 
curriculum!!!" ' 

Rule II. Develop a style. Anyone can 
write with a pencil point Be dif- 
ferent Try vniting with the 'eraser. 

. (This really works if you use dirty 
paper.) However, in acquiring your 
style avoid profanity. It's improper. 
And beside, it gets cut out anyway. 

Rule III. Choose titles for your woiks 
carefully. In many oases the title 
can make or brealc the sloacy. For 
instance, I wrote an atticle entitled 
"Galumph, Galtunph, Gali^mph, Gal- 
umph" Another one would have 
made the title ridiculous. 

Rule IV. Inject humor. One of the 
best ingredients of a got$H story can 
be hiunor, if used properly. The fol- 
lowing is an ocamfde of sadht talcen 
from thnl; beat sti^ *jOipfaan 

ehtm a restaurant says, 'TIl ^ve 
a ham- sandwich." Waitress; "Would 
you like lettuce on it?" Man: "No 
thanks, I have a, hole in my shoe." 

Rule V. Write clearly. By this it is 
meant that the author expresses him- 
self with absolute clarity through 
skillful "utilization of correct vocab' 
ulary and grammar. I can cite' (mly 

..two ^xamplM of such precision and 
conciseness, which I offer to the 
' studrats. Both are letters written by 
Chinese, whom you know as masters , 

• of expression. The first, a letter 
from a man who lost some haggage 
on an airpbne tr^,. ,iras pri:ttea as 

"Blr. Baggage Man United States 
of Los Angeles; Gentlemen Dear Sir: 
~rdam seldom wb^ fuitcaae are. She 
no fly. You no more fit to baggage 
n^wrt^ thM for ^rTMke cMit loud. 


That all I h(^. What the matter 
with you? The second ia a reply to 
an advertisemmt for a male secret 
tary. "Sir I am Chinese Btmg Ho 

but can drive a typewriter with 
good noise, and my English is it. My 
.ast job left itself from me for 
simple reason that big man was 
dead. It was on account of not my 
fault So, honorable sirs, what of it? 
. If 1 can be of big use to you, I will 
arrive on same date as you can

are suclh lO^ciHyit writer^ it woidd 
be a good idee to change your name 
to Wong and write with chopsticks. 
However, don't make your name 
Wong Wong, because two * Wongs 
never made a writer. 
The above rules :should help you,, 
but if you don't succeed at first, don't 
become discouraged. I k n e w a . map.

College Players 
To Stage Comedy

On Friday evening, Novem-

Since "Kind Lady's" enor- 
mously successful run on 
Broadway with an all-star cast, 
it has been a great favorite 
with University and Little 
Theatre groups all over the 
county. The Players feel con-

The story centers around

reserved woman of middle age,

' Characterizations are very 
difficult for an amateur group

"Some new ^ool tables and 
perhaps some other lacUities

on the reH:onditioning ol the

President Rathgeber said that

in the Student Center is ^8pe<i- 
ially dangerous because of 
the highly inflammable mater-

^itts, too, end€d a century that had begun With the 
opening of the Mansfield Classical Seminary in 1857. 

Now, thejjollege is in a new century, full of po- 
tentiality htip as yet hardly known. Mans^ieldians, 
whQ iaust: imt^ vf&mr(i^i»(!#$d^cmt &i^tM Ifei^te 
of the past, are now turning their attention to prob- 
lems that will face the college in these second hun- 
dred years and to improvements that can be made. 

The months that have passed since May have 
gll^' EMni^e- diemofHitititio Manisfiel^i will con- 

tinue to move forward. During the summer, a modern 
flig:ht of steps was built between North and Straughn 
Halls, the interior of Straughn ilall was redecorated, 
Aiidithe Student Center was given % new roof. With 
^'£411 college term have e^HiNK'klliniNUill^^ of

^^gi Oiathe Student AclMties* Fee to permit the 
•continuation of a full pog||t|h ^1 f|^<Hftl:#^Vi|^ 
a time of rising costs. * 

These things alone would seem sufficient to give 
'Mansfl^ld's secoAd century a noteworthy beginning. 
•Yet,, there ace two elemjents of ch^age -that have 
brought added significance to this time of transaction. 
The first is the beginning of a new administration 
under Dr. L^wis W. Rathgeber, who this summer as- 
-»ii&ed; the presidency of Mansfield State T@dfihe£s 

^e secoittd l»1^e-^aqp!^»€it<^ oi a iong-^

were initiated during the. presidency of James G. 
-Morgan and which is being-carried forward under the 
new college administration. This program is^sched- 
^d to^get under wi^ next sppi^v with the co^istruc- 
tion of a new Library and Administration Building. 

The coming years of Mansfifeld's secbnd century 
will bring with them many problems— problems that 

their solution; Yet, there wiH always be one funda- 
_jiental problem that will outweigh all others in im- 
^ortai^. As expressed by -Dr. Rathgeb3r at his lirst 
iconvoption of students and faculty on Septemfe^ 10, 
thjs: j^oblem concerns "the. development of an awnos- 
phere in which the intellectual piH)ces» can function, 
can be so stimulated, in order to produce a Mansfield 
graduate second to none in the state and nation."

fikto^n grew fff oi» » (MiU and stspaggling seminary 
to one of the leading colleges of northern Pennsyl-

say about a person whose case

course, due to the improved 
salary schedule mandated by 
the 1955 Qeneral Assembly. 
Neviertheleps, Mansfield gradu- 
ates continue to be able to re- 
ceive higher starting salaries 
by going out-of-state. 

The difference in initial sal- 
aries between Pennsylvania and 
Qthw states varies roughly from 
$300 to $400. For Mansfield, 
this difference is greatest in 
the case of elementary gradu- 
ated and smallest with music 
"praduates. It is interesting to 
noter therefore, that 20 of Mans- 
field's elementary graduates 
took out-of-state positions as 
compared to 166 who remained 
in Pennsylvania. On the other 
vhand, only five graduates in 
the Music Department chose 
to go out of the state, while 
19 accepted Pemuorlwania posi* 
.tieqs. Other factora ii%piy be par- 
^Hy responsible for this dif- 
ference, but it does appear that 
the matter of salary exerts a 
strong influence.

At times — especially during the day and in the 
evening — the "dorm" is more like the North Pole than 

No sooner do the coeds d^fr^i^ir Eskimo "duiis^ 
than the radiators make their presence felt to the ac- 
companiment of a clanging, banging, gurgling din. 
Suddenly the North Pole becomes the equator ; all is 
not right with the world ! 

Immediately the rooms become stifling. Com- 
plying with circumstances, the coeds remove their 
2oats, mittens, and scarves and open windows and 
transoms. (This creates a draft, thus enabling the hot

For Ae Right, 
Write to .'Flashlight' 

Do many of you upperclass- 
tam remember the literary edi- 
tion turned out by the Flash- 
tiilht a few years ago? 

TreffeisiR memory, 
• perhaps, and enlighteri those of 
you who were not here at that 
time, a little explanation 
might be in order. 

The paper consisted almost 
entirely of short stories, poems, 
essays* novelettes, and the 
like writtfen by aspiring authors 
here on campus. From all ap- 
pearances, the edition seemed 
a hu^e success, and immedi- 
ately plans for mother, to be 
pr od uced in th e n ear futuf e, 
wei^ formulated. However, 
various difficulties arose, the 
paper's limited space was al- 
^t^d fbr both news' and views, 
»sulting in the fjians being 
pigeon-holed until an appro- 
priate time. 

As you have probably notic- 
ed by this time, the Flashlight 
^ now an eight->page paper.

According to Br. Remaley's 
findings, NeW York seems will- 
ing to pay higher salaries for 
beginners than does Pennsyl- 
vania. The maximums of New 
York salary schedules are 
sometimes, but not always, 
higher than those in Pennsyl- 
vania. On the other hand, 
Pennsyhrania apparently pays 
higher median salaries than 
doe* New Yatk. Furthermwee, 
tliace is evidence th<U Penn- 
sylvania give* niof» recogni- 
tion than does (few Y<H'k to 
superior service in deteonin- 
ing its salary schedules^ 

It is natural,.,.liowe]rer, thai 
initial salaries should loom 
espcK:ially krge for beginning 
teaeiiert;. causing many of 
the^t to Bcek 4>ositions in other 
stater^that at least seem more 
attractive. This year, 41 Mans- 
field graduates went to New 
York alone. Seven went to 
New Jersey, two to Ohio, and 
one- each to Maryland, Ken- 
tucky, and Colorado. 

Mansfield State Teachers 
College has enjoyed a reputa- 
tion for turning out well- 
qualified . teachers, and its 
graduates are held in high re- 
gard in many areas. They ap- 
pear to be especially popular 
in Binghamton, N. Y.. where 
six memben Of Ifon^i^iPi 
Class of 1957 are now teaching. 

I^. Richard M. Wilson, Di- 
rector of Placement, has em- 
phasized, incidentally, that the 
reputation held by the gradu- 
ates of a school is definitely 
impbrtant to those who follow. 

As long as the great out-of- 
state demand for Mansfield 
graduates continues, the most 
effective way of 'keeping thew 
graduates within < the state 
would seem to be to make pub- 
lic sahool teaching in Pennsyl- 
vania as attractive at possible 
for the b^inning t«wher. This 
could be aocodipIishM hot only 
by the raising of initial salar- 
ies, but also by the focusing of 
^ater^ attention on the ad- 
vahfages;^" a young teacher

With this^ pnirii * he shoes the

to grow horns and so his 
mouth can be somewhere. The 
horns are to butt^with and the 
mouth is to moo with. It has 
always been that way, I think. 
And then under the cows 
hanks milk. It is all fixed nice

this problem,: A£t upon the 
following ru^M. 

1. Learii to say NO. Learn 
to say it^ in at least ten differ- 
ent languages. Then, if you 
transfer to Italy, Spain, etc., 
you can still say no to com- 
mittee woric. 

2. Do a tovLsw job on your 
first committee. Criticize others 
for the Job they are doing. 

3. Never leave your room. 
You will die from starvation, 
but win have achieved one 
goal in life: n^t getting on 

4. When a guy comes in the 
room (it seldom is a female) 
say, "No, I can't do it, but come 
in anyway." (If it were a fe- 
male you would probably ac- 
cept the job on the ciniuiiittee, 
especially if she were the 
chairman of it.) 

5. Seriously, committee work 
is no joke. You are needed 
at times , to help on various 
eommittees, but learn how to 
say NO when your studies 
need you more.

Winter Spoi^H 

By Floyd Lounsbuiry 

As November rolls ar<mnd 
and the tennis players start 
using their rackets for snow 
shoes, oiur attention focused 
on winter sports. 

The bowling alleys will be 
one of the most popular spots 
throughout the winter months. 
The scores may not run too 
high but it is good exercise and 
the price is rii^. 

Ice skating is a popular 
sport in this area. As winter 
0^ gete stronger the ice on 
^ local ponia gete thicker. 
(At least, thi^'s the tteory.) 
Besanceney's pond was a fav- 
orite spot last year. Many of 
the students were rather care- 
ful how they aat down, so I 
asMuned "they had been sfcat-

You may think that pole- 
vaulting (not to be confused 
with pail-volting, the process 
of passing electric currents 
tlat»ugh wash buckets for no 
apparent reason) is relatively 
new in the sports realm, but 
actually ite origins lie in 
anti<iuity. (The'' name itself 
comes from the anglo-Sax- 
on paole, stair and >aeiUte. to 
break, a leg by IkUhig .from a 
great height.) 

It is believed that the Egyp^ 
tians engaged in pole-vaUlting 
contests when not busy draw- 
ing people with both eyes on 
the same side of their head 
on walls. Proof of this is 
found in one of these drawings, 
discovered on the walls of the 
Temple of 4pana, Goddess of 
Toothpaste. It depicts a man 
vaulting through the air with 
the aid of a long stick. (Either 
that or the craziest flag the 
archaebfogiste have ever seen.) 
These are the same Egyptians 
who gave us the pyramids. (No 
receipt was ever made out and 
there's been quite a hassle in 
the Cairo law coiirte late^.) ^ 
First written records of the 
existence of pole-vaulting come 
to us from Greece. According 
to these Greek records— which 
are not played on juke boxes 
for apparent reasons — the 
sport &rst came into being 
when a Greek shepherd . from 
the tfliwn of Oedipus, who was 
running as he carried his steff, 
caught the tip of it in a gopher 
hole and was thrown heacUong 
into a pig sty. (Archimedes, 
who was wandering about look- 
ing for a baUitttb to sit in, saw 
him, took one whiff, and cried, 
"You reek-a.") Thus was c;reat- 
ed a new divwaion. 

At first, the advocates of this 
new sport tried vaulting over 
lines p^ted at various heighte 
on the i^de of a building. Need- 
less to say, this did Uttle to 
promote interest in the pas- 
time, but helped considerably 
to decrease the male popula*. 
tion. (Because of the maiming 
and disfllgurement the n^n of 
Oedipus suffered in pursuit of 
{enjoyment, they were glori- 
fied by Sophocles in his play, 
"The Oedipus Wrecks." 

In Rome, the sport was in- 
stalled ia the Olympic games; 
It was at thiji that the first 
.vault of any. great height fi|s 
'^ma4e. lAffcus Dedus, the man 
w|ib usually .umpired the 
gfmes, participated, and made 

cent, however, he lost his bal- 
ance, and was killed by the 

drop. Many elegies have been 
written on his death, probably 
the most famous of which is 
Gibbons' "Decline and Eill of 
the Roman Umpire.** 

Vaulting lapsed into near ob- 
scurity during the Dark Aget 
whe(|, its f of tiswt»n* naks 1^ 
diminished by the Plague. The 
few left thought it futile and 
despaired in carrying on. This 
attitude was kQown as ^'Futil^ 

Another reason for the 
sport's decline duriag^this per^ 
iod was that at |hisiti«M> prices 
went down on a wide . scaiA, 
With everyone buying wide 
scales, there was little money 
left to invest in athletics. 

Introduced into the United 
SUtes, vaulting ' became im- 
mensely popular and soon new 
records were being set. In 1821, 
a mark of 12 feet, seconds 
was set in Broekviiui^ ^r ^ 
sane Asylum. This was the 
same year Harvard defeated 
William and Mary in footbalL 
(Harvard 36, William IZ» Mazy 

The record which stands to- 
day (15 feet, 9 inches> was set 
by Cornelius Warmerdam. 
Warmerdam ititorried and both- 
ered for quite some time over 
whether or not someone would 
break his record, but when 
Stahislaus Kowalski, the tall- 
est vaulter in the world (lO'-O") 
failed six times In a row, War- 
merdam ceased worrying. He 
knew he had set a record that , 
couldn't be touched, even hy a

Sam Kreig Sdected Athlete of Mgnth 

In keeping with previous 
Flashlight policy, it is a pleas- 
ure for the sports staff of this 
newspaper to announce, its se- 
leotioa of Athlete of the. Month 
f^^43fetober. The standards by 
Vtrhiidh ; this selection is made 
consist only of all-around ath- 
letic ability — and no one, we 
think, fills these standards more 
ciqpably than co-capUun David 
I^g. .Sam is culminating a 
four year fobtball career which 
has been filled with outstanding 
performances. And these per- 
formances indicitfe a greMHdeal 
of hard" work. 

When Sam arrived at Mans- 
field four years ago,^ the squad 
was ripe with fullbacks, many 
more experienced than Sam.- 
But that didn't stop the crush- 
«?r as he moved into the starting 
lineup on several oceasions. 
In his sojj^homore year, Sam be- 
dttrnfe-mofe'^i^ti fixture and 
h«l£Hdewn the fallback slot 
ever since. Tfie Teason for his 
starting assignment is obvious. 

iQsively, Sam has been as 
runner as we've had 
here at Mansfield in the past 
five years. He runs with speed, 
guts arid' determination. He runs 
as hard as anyone and can 
drive past a man in a tough 
^uation. When a hole opens, 
Sam usually finds it; his fast 
start and quick reflexes give 
him the added ability to change 
divedfe^ ivlthotit losing stride. 
/ Although he is not on the re- 
ceiving end of too many pass 
plays, Sam has shown many 
outstanding instances of his 
poteiitial in this area. He has 
good -hands and quick hands: 
Jbis timiag is eKeeUeat. And -af- 

ter grffbbing a pass, he's as hard 
or harder to bring down than 
when running from scrimmage. 
This^added tlirWi «ids in mak- 
ing Sam's offensive ability eves 
more impressive. 

There is probably no man on 
the squad equal to the defensive 
ilbility Uf the crusher. Sam rare- 
ly misses a tackle and seems to 
ienie^here a play U foing to 
be 'rurt. Line bacfcei^ have the 
rather thankless job of making 
a godtt 'majority of all tateUeSi 

And in the case of Mansfteld, 
Sam is in on the greater per- 
centage of these tackles in 
every game. His nickname, 
''^noher", came as a result «f 
his bone-jarring tackles — he 
meets most runners at full 

On pass defense, Sam is just 
as tough as in the offensive 
passing game. If a pass is in his 
area, Sam is very likely to in- 
tercept, kno<^ down the pass 
or crash into the iseeeiver with 
a bruising tackle. He is alert 
and responds quickly to the 
short pass, a feature definitely 
needtd 4n defense «f tiii»^c^^. 

More merit can be heaped on 
Sam's shoulders when consider- 
ation is given to the various in- 
jlnries he-has sustained throagh- 
lout his football ^ career. Last 
year, he was the Mounts' most 

consistent ground gainer be- 
fore he got hurt and-nUssed the

Irv Ktinjger Act^ 
Spork to Gridders 

Of the new croi^ of firsMdi- 
men football players, 
Klinger appears to be the 
most outstanding. In fact, he's 
turned out to be Mansfield's 
most consistent ground gain- 
er leading the team in total 
yards gained. His speed, ag- 
gressiveness, and strength add 
statute to Jits: tooiOPiU prowess. 

irv didn't see much action 
in the Brockport game al- 
though, in the limited action 
that he did see, he picked up an 
an average of fiw yards per 

The following week Mr. 
Klinger put on a performance 
which will be remembered by 
all who witnessed the King's 
College, j|Nnne( !rime after time 
he would pick up long gains 
or make the yardage required 
for a first down. He was espec- 
ially effective tfoUnd^ the ends 
and inside the ends. When 
traveling at top speed, he re- 
quired two or three defend- 
ers to hrijag*hiia--doMro, Itff^ 
times ha -^Mrciedvtwo or^^thvae 
w^th him. 

Later in the same game, Irv 
interceptod a pass and batted 
a few K^hers to the po^nd.. On 
the intetveptiohr he made as 

fine a runback as any Mount 
has made all season. After that 
gante, someone remarked, "the 
kid was all ever, the «eld." 

In the ^DOmsburg massacre, 
Irv was one of the bright spots 
in the Mansfield attack as he 
consistently broke loose for 
short gains. These gains were 
made through a tough' Huskies 
line that didn't budge too much 
when attacked by the Mans- 
field forwarrf' wall. And al- 
thou^ he> was hit plenty hard 
many T times, the Mount right 
half back renewed his attack 
against these terrific odds with | 

The final football game of 
Mansfield's 1957 season will 
ake place this coming Satur- 
ay afternoon when tiie:iBagles :

ises to be the toughest of the .

and would like noising letter - 
then to dump the visitors from

Coach Stelmack is confident

one of the most progressive 

.{jgiardiB on the Mountaineers'

Tom loves the game of foot-

has played in eirery game thii^.

. showing, incl)iding outstand-

Tom is. a determined and de-

He is also one of the three! 
Canton Warriors here at Mans-

He proved his importance at

Frank Frontino and ended up- 
on the Bloomsburg 2-yard line. 
On that very play, FYank was 
injured and Msisfield^ was 
without a quarter back. At this

Their courage was bolstered 
by a school law which provid- 
ed for the closing of all. Tioga 
County schools duiring Teach- 
ers' Institute on Thursday and 
Friday, October 24 and 25. 

This year's, assemblage, held 
in the Wellsboro Senior High 
School building, marked the 
ninetieth Annual Meeting of 
Teachers of Tioga County. 
Institute Speakers 

Speakers at Institute were 
Dr. Bemice Wright from Syra-

Art Exhibit Held 

Art appreciation at MSTC 
was stimulated by the person- 
al appearance of Gordon C. 
Myer and an exhibition of 
his works at the Arts Building 
on Sunday aftenio6n, Oetober 

Mr. Myer, who teaches art at 
Ithaca High School, and his 
wife were here as the guests 
of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Ben- 
cetic in conjunction with the 
"Meet the Artist Series." The 
artist received his degree of 
bachelor of arts from Edin- 
boro State Teachers College 
and his degree of master of 
arts from Pncm Slata. 

All of the paintings on ex- 
hibition were studies in water 
colors; however, Mr. Myer al- 
so does some painting with 
oil. A <iaality of uniqueness is 
detected in the artist because 
he usually does not have a def- 
iniUi subject in mind when he 
starts looking for something to 
paint. Often tim«^ ithen driv- 
ing through the country, he is 
attracted by an appealing 
scene^ He then stops, sketches 
an outluie and._dQta ihe » 
pamting later.

which has been set up for 
MSTC. A "floor plan" of this 
whole program appeared re-

Program OvHined 

The general program in- 
cludes the construction of p 
new Library - Administration 
Building to be built on the 
ll^l^^ji^of AInmni Hall; an 
atBR»(Krl§Rl which will be lo- 
cated east of the present cam- 
pus junior high school; a new 
Student Union to be located in 
existing North Hall; several 
dorms; a new or remodeled 
Maintenance Building; an ad- 
dition to the present gymnas- 
ium; a claan'odtti building; ex- 
panded recreational facilities 
near the present "Hut"; and 
expanded parking facilities. 

Funds have been appropriat- 
ed for the construction of the 
Library Administration Build- 
ing and the athletic field. Con- 
struction of the former will be- 
gin soon after Alumni Hall is 
demolished. No defiilite date 
has been set for starting work 
on the athletic field. A 
$100,000 appropriation has also 
been granted MSTC by the 
Genera! I^ate Authority for 
purchasing additional land for 
use in the building program.

dule, demands for dorm space,

"Plans For EC 

Concerning the condition of 
the Education Center, Presi- 
dent Rathgeber said that a 
State Department of Proper- 
ties and Supplies is conduct- 
ing a cost survey to make an 
estimation o^ what new light- 
ing, and ventilating qrstems 
tioh systems will coist. iFlans 
for painting the E C are being 
withheld for the present until 
it is determined whether con- 
struction of the ligibting, heat- 
nig and ventilating systems 
would necessitate changing 
walls and ceiling in the build- 
ing. It would be useless to 
paint the inside of the building 
then tinr eeme of the newly- 
painted walls apart to install 
these new syateois.

In BdcK^tiH to being remembered m the autumn 
1ti«t saw irtitoraobiles' he»d!i«hts increase by one 
ij^Hrired per cent, that saw Oklahoma meet itjs Water- 
loo, and that played host to one of the biggest epi- 
demics of influenza in hfstory, 196t*8 will be 
remembered long as the spring whtch marked man's 
iliftial rocketing steps into a spatial concept of life. 

The frightening feeling of surprise, fear, and 
awe that accompanied this ^advancement by a pos- 
sible agressor force has sIHt hot cemi^etely van- 
ished, is it Mliely to vanish until the Waited 
atfttes sends out a satellite that is in all ways bigger, 
goes further into space and contains not dogs but 
humans. For the first time in decades, Americans 
1^ jMMt to decide 
wWfet nwr^-'^fiil^^ — maintaining the 
highest; i^ndard of living or, regardless of tax 
costs, pursuing the greatest scientific program in 
histQry. At the moment it appears- that ^ lead- 
ers are att^mpting^ to bridge this chaam bjr ««|n- 
pK>ft|sr^ order tS* see if not one, but both of these 
gdals^cim be attained. A successful effort would 
once and fo^ all eliminate the doubts of the prac- 
tic«ti^ of democracy. 

'^'^^^^^►^slHfrfe intolerance, 
busine^ competition and domestic problems, the 
citizens have always enjoyed the smug, yet naive, 
assurance that we would always be safe from art 
aggressor force, a new dotibt-%as- beeii*-added to 

citkwiBs' JjiurdeBs; Are We^My safe? And 

iC' not, why not ? 

Probably the answer to these questions and 
doubts lies largely in the word ^mocracy. At 
an elementary levelTthis^orr meana ^iOe^of :We 
people." Yet more and more, Americans are re- 
fusing to accept this way of life — not outwardly 
and intentionally nor even in a directly treasonous 
manner, but in their reluctant effort to assume any 
kfn* respomrfbility. Too many people are re- 
fusing to accept the responsibility that is necessary 
to maintain the principals that our forefathers 
fought for. This weakness is most apparent when 
a cmaen says : "No, I did«*t vote, it was too nasty 
underfoot." Incidentally this peraon is the first to 
behave savagely when his security is directly en- 
dangered, or his evening paper is late. 

Running parallel to the failur e of citizens ^ to 
"^ume any fciOT of resm^ftii^nity is ttie growing 
ktdilibrence tc^ard education. Universal education 
is the cornerstone of democracy! Yet too many 
Americans continue to pick the easiest educational 
path. Selecting the easiest course of study and 
paying tt artt^^^oia t as Hfe ccsBiry liarlefft us in 
an educationar depression. Intellect and scientific 
growth cannot be divorced, and when they are tem- 
porarily parted, the organization dependent upon 
them weakens. 

finirii^^ we are competi»|f Wltb^a sphere of in- 
^fluenci? which has all but e4hninat«d God frpm their 
system. Yet, how many of us have tb,f sincere 
faith in Qod that was so expertly shown by:|})e lit- 
tle girl wlio sajd : "Do not worrr about ti^e Sput- 
iiiiis-^JEi^ is atilk in Heaven and ]^ fe-lilgher than 
all the satellites pui together. 

To insure the continuation of our democratic 
way of life, three things are essentially needed: 
^iin willingness to accept renponsibili^, an asshnila- 
ikm ot^mi rmds: scientific kirowledige a» pMil^e, 
and a stronger belief in God. 

Fall of 1957 could be the prelude of an undis- 
covered harmonious way of life or it could be the

wlikt ft is, it is up to yoifr-^today's student tomor-

The night was warm, and not 
unlike those the potter had 
seen many times before ex 
cept for the new star which 
burned fiercely, suspended 
above the city by its rays pierc- 
ing the dark and pinning it to 
the cloth of night. He glanced 
at it periodically as he walked. 

Fingers, worn smooth by 
years at the wheel> clutched 
beneath his roh» the few coins 
he had allowed himself for. 
pleasure. The day and its ac- 
companying worK was done; 
the night, and Jtti MC^)e jiut 

He walked toward the inn, 
carefully dodging the people 
and animals that milled about 
him. The city was still filling.- 
More trade, more coins, more 
wine; the thought of it had al- 
ready begun to intoxicate him, 
He waited until a heavily-laden 
camel passed, li}inbiering be- 
hind its owner, then crossed to 
his destination* 

The lamp wicks flickered in 
the draft fr^lft the open door, 
resuming thehr dim glow after 
his enterance. Recognition of 
friendly faces among the many 
strange led him into a far 
corner, and won he ww lost, 
just anotheif rofeed llgure, 
drinking, eating, forgetting. 

Near the center was a small 
table occupied by two men, 
both bearded, and both appar- 
ently friends of the owner, for 
they spoke freely to him as he 
brought another skin of wine. 

"Aram, you have owned this 
inn for a good number of 
years now, and never has busi- 
ness been so good." 

"Yes, Michael," he replied to 
the smaller of the two, "but 
it war not last. The inn over- 
flows now, and I have had to 
turn people away, but once the 
census has been taken, the 
people will return to their 
homes, and t will go on as be- 
fore, scraping to feed my wife 
and child, taxed heavUy at 
every turn." 

A sharp tug at ^a tpuc in- 
terrupted the buriy man's talk, 
and turning, he looked into the 
smiliM, face of his excited 
yottng Mn. 

"Father, father, do yon know 
what has happened?" aAed 
the child. 

"You h«fwi*l f ed the si4- 
mals in the^^hle itt I toM

"But father, I have. And you

said the other maii^ SKting his 
cup to thick lips and draining 
it. A thin stream of wine es- 
caped his mouth and trickled, 
blood^lilw inlaiiift heard. "P«or

mused, wiping his mouth with 
a dirty hand, '*why wm he

We are writing this letter for all of the stu- 
dents on this campus. They were so busy decorating 
**wellR," rehearsing for the Grecian Sing, preparing 
for "open house," playing basketball, caroling and 
shopping for Christmas gifts for others that thfey 
neglected to write their individual letters. 

Before we list their requests, we'd like to tell 
you, Santa, that they have been very good all year 
— f«r co1ief« stuclents. Natarally, there w«i^ a 
few times when they were h©t too angelic, but boys 
will be boys! And the co-eds did their share of 
mischief-making, too. But on the whole, all of the 
students were vivacious and energetic. 

Their numerous and various requests foltow. 

BrinflT them an honeet-to^oodness swimming 
pool-^ot one that is freshly painted oh the outside 
and decidedly empty on the inside. , 

They also req,uest a tasty Christmas dinner on

please !) ^ ^ 

Bring^ pipe for President Rathgeber, and

The campus is not complete-

—who live here through the 
year. Here and there, a soli- 
tary automobile can still be

Straughn Hall is the first to 

"This Was been quite a 
Christmas, don't you think? 
The best one yet in my 28 
yairs, it seems to me. My, I 
always feel sort of proud when 
the students and faculty gather 
around me to light the Christ- 
mas tree. Thatt really starts 
the Chnstmas season. And do 
you remember the Grecian 
iSing? Voices raised in spng. I 
knew every minute what was

Vesper. Sei-vice that Sunday 
evening. I was glad they didn't 
forget the religious aspect of 
Christmas. And "Amahl and 
the Night Visitors"! I shall 
never .forget that as long as I 
stand, hpre. Yes, at Christmas 
as always, I guess I'm the 
most important building on

South Hall, silent UP to now^ 

joins the conver^attoii. 

"I know I'm just a youngr 
ster around here. But there 
#tM 4;(«dte a lot of celebrating 
gloihg on in me— of one sort 
another. (I must admit I felt a 
little groggy when it was all 
over.) That well sing was nice, 
though. And the' open house, 
too. It's alwi^ so good to see 
new faces!" 

North Hall, stately and 
proud, looks scornfully over 
the shoulder of Alumni Hall 
at this upstut niMi's dormi- 

"Whatever you can do, I can 
do better. You have one well. 
I have so many that they hold 
competitions to see which one 
the girls can decorate best. 
There was an open heuse here, 
too, and the people, came tfoop- 
ing up from well to well to 
see if the judges had judged 
right. Not only did I have a 
well sing, but the Freshman 
Chorus canw over i>ne evening. 
And can you fan<^^ Christ 
mas dinner for the college be 
ing held with those walls of 
yours. South Hall? Of course 
not. Why, it was that dinner 
more than anything else that 
brought the Christmas season 
to a grand climax." 

•♦With one exception, al 
ready named," interjects the 

"I might add," continues 
North Hall (ignoring the Gym 
nasium and continuing to ad 
dress South Hall), "that they 
were doing things like tKat in 
my spacious halls before your 
kind of (cough) modern, func 
tional architecture (cough) was 
even heard of." 

"Well, remember. North 
Hall," adds the Student Center 
a little timidly. 'Tm even, old 
er than you; and Fth still go- 
ing, too. Why, this year, some 
groups even came up to hold a 
few practices in me.' 

After ' a pause, the Student 
CentecH? addresses a neighbor 
that ir thinks it can -^challenge 
on more equal terms. 

"I say. Alumni Hall, that's 
more than they did in you, 
isn't it? T^^M^B^~i»i^ 
practices in any of yom rooms, 
did they?" 

Alumni Hall, which has been 
quite frail i9 more recent 
years, has a tendency to live 
in the past. As a matter of 
fact, the 72-year-old building 
has not been following the con 
versation very closely. Its 
thoughts have been back in 
earlier, happier days when 
Christmas programs took place 
in its auditorium and the chil- 
dren of the town recited little 
pieces in its Model School 
rooms. It can even remember 
when the Orphans* School 
Band played concerts there— 
before N(»^ Hall or the Stu 
dent Oipm^' had y^t been 

Roused from its musings. 
Alumni Hall answers the Stu 

"Why, no— there weren't 
any Christmas practices held 
in me this year. It seems they 
don't trust my floors any more

I saw one of tny pefiimistie 
friends the otlier day as I was 
coming out of Mr. Lunn's phil- 
osophy class. He was wearing 
a worried look and an ivy 
league shirt vdik matcUng fur- 
lined belt I asked hUn what 
the trouble was. 

It seemed that he had been 
thinldng jiboui Christmas va- 
cation and had arrived at some 
pretty dreary conclusions. I 
believe he had taken statistics 
because he had a set of figures 
on the students of Mansfield 
and what tiiey would be doing 
and what would happen over 
the vacation. 

Ivy League Friend's Co mm e nt s 

These are the results of his 
study and his own comments 
about them^ 

"There will be about twenty- 
five students working in Post 
Offices. I would think that they 
should confuse the U. S mail 
so it would never get through 
"Some of our smarter stu 
dents will take jobs in stores, 
and the resulting confusion 
will end in the new depression 
I've been predicting for five 
years. Thwe will also be the 
people who work for thefr par- 
ents. This is really the best 
idea. That way they will confine 
their activities to a narrow area. 

"There will be three mar- 
riages, at least ten engagements 
and perhaps five tacky pilsple 
will break up." 

Pessimism Personified 

"Wait a minute," I interject- 
ed, "aren't you being a little 
too pessimirtic?" 
"Shut up," he replied, "You 

askUd ihe f or my opiidonsf IBMP

Q ? 

By Michael Fleming 

This month's G-Q is one, I 
think, that has been antagoniz- 
ing the maJo^;<i^ lis. ]| per- 
tains to our present absence 


Before answering the C-Q I 
want to thank Ralph Verrastro, 
whose article in last month's 
Flashti0ht/ increased iny in- 
centive to answer this month's 
questien* Also, I want to extend 
special thanks to Dean fiurli^ 
who permitted me to reproduce 
in my article a copy of the ab- 
sence policy which, incident- 
ally, is in the hands of each 
facility mmberV By printing 
this clarification of the absence 
policy it is hoped that every- 
one will obtain a complete 
understan^mi of the system, 
and thaiNMMlHr wiU be 
settled once and for all. Thus, 
follows the answer to this 
month's C-Q: What is this set- 
up called Absence System, and 
how does it woris? ^ 
ClariAeatiert of AbaeMe Policy 

I. A basic premise of this pol- 
icy is that no person is expect- 
ed to jeopardize his health in 
an overzealous effort to meet 
class commitments. 

II. When a student has been 
absent for tlu^'ee consecutive 

meetings of the class, it is the 
instructor's responsibility to no- 
tify the student's department 
director, who in turn yriXi notify 
the Dean of Instruction. 

The intent is to locate within 
a reasonable period a student, 
especially a day student, who 
has withdrawn from college 
without having notified the 
proper people. 

m. A student who accumu- 
lates an excessive absence (one 
more than the number of sem- 
ester hours granted for the 
course) without justification 
will be excluded .from o^iss 
and assigned s grade of 
It . is the responsibility of the 
instructor to notify the Office 
of the Dean of Instruction with- 
out delay when the critical ab- 
sence (2nd absence in a 1 sem- 
ester hour coiirs^ ^d in a 2 
semester how comrsje; 4th in a 
3 semester hour course; Sth in 
3 4 semester hour course) has 

The application of this reg- 
ulation should be modified to 
the extent that the student 
should be permitted to attend 
the ^iass ftrfkywing the oritieai 
absence unless the case has al- 
ready been settled by action of 
the office of the Dean of In- 
struction. At any rate there 
should be sufficient time fw 
the office of the Dean of In- 
struction to review the case 
before the student is excluded 
from class with a failing grade. 
IV. Even tiioiigh' an extended 
series of absences may have 
been unavoidable it is possible 
for a student to be Out of dass 
enough to jeopardize his stand- 
ing in a course, the Wowing 
regulation was formiwted to 


It is not you

To vast and noble works.

Whose turbulence fans

Seek to explain what is seen 
Through the darkened eye 
Or felt by the troubled spirit.

cope with such a situation: "If 
a student accumulated a number 
of absences in a course equal 
to twiOe the number of semM^ 
ter hours for which a course 
is offered, the case must be re- 
viewed by the Curriculum 
Committee before credit can be 
granted for the course." It is 
the responsibility of the . in- 
structor to send to the office 
of the Dean of Instruction the 
name of the student and dates 
of his. absenees. 
V. Any absence on the part 
of a student on a probationary 
status which is not justified to 
the satisfaction of the instruct- 
or should be reported to the 
office of the Dean of instruc- 

VI Students on probation are 

required to justify every ab- 
sence. They obtain from either 
the Personnel Deans or the 
Dean of Instruction a form pro- 
bationary student's absence 
record, preferably in advance. 
This form is issued after justi- 
fication and should be used by 
the student to clear the absence 
with the instructor. The form 
is then filed with the Personnel 
Dean after the student has ob- 
tained the signatures of in- 
structors concerned. 

Send In Your "C-Q" 

The C-Q's do not seem to be 
coming in in any great amounts. 
So, don't hesitate; sit down and 
write out your question. Mail

later than one week after the 
issue of this paper. There is 
only one favor that I ask and 
that is as follows: please sign 
your name to the question. 
This enables me to contact you 
about the question, if I so de- 
sire. Also it limits the possibil- 
ity of people sending in absurd 
questions, just for the laugh of 
it. Remember your name will

The Korean 6- I. Bonus issue

' November's referendum pav-

150 million dollars needed for 
the proposed bonus. The voters 
gave th^ approval to borrow- 
ing the money contingent on 
the State Legislature enacting 
a tax program to repay the loan. 
Passing taxes, even for this 
p^Mqjrte-i^^oved purpose, is ex- 
acting, especially for our law- 
makers, tmtil the taifL program 
is passed, no bonds may be 
sold; no bonds sold, no bonus. 

The next session of the Leg- 
islature won't convene until 
il^anuary 1959; a speouA session 
is posf^le, but not lilcely. As-

of the various states, Pennsyl-

As I Was Saying 

GullibU's Travels .rest 
The heat had become almost 
unbearable in the small, crowd- 
ed waiting room of the rail- 
road station. I removed the fu- 
chsia handkerchief from my 
chartreuse sport coat and mop- 
ped my perspiring brow with 
it. Wringing out the jacket, I 
replace the dry hankie and 


he had., somehow 
managed to cause hot air to 
emanate from the ventilating 
system, and was now standing 
behind it, I imagined, tossing 
grit into the fans in compliancO 
with his duti^, 

Unable to endure it any long- 
er, I arose, and, fool that 1 

was, casually attemptcid to open 
set them aside. The air was j the window nearest me. It 

stifling, and something had to 
be done about it. 

I summoned a passing red- 
cap with all the dignity of my 
station (39th Precinct^ vagrancy) 
and requeste<l that he open a 
door to increase circulation. 
He complied, and I was soon 
rewarded with a fresh, cool 
breeze from the broom closet. 

Disgusted, I left my seat to 
get some cigarettes and, lucky- 
ily enough, found one that was 
still lit. As I was retiirning to 
my place, I psissed the train 
announcer^s bdoth and paused 
to watch him perform. j 

Taking his upper plate from 
his mouth, he replaced it with 
a handkerchief, put a clamp on 
his nose, and began shouting 
into the microphone. Over the 
loudspeaker I heard, "Frame 
cow bleeding ON TRACK nive 
FOR Reechmun, Monhnitram, 
AND Gleefur." 

I said to myself, "Self, that's 
your train. You'd better get 
on your - hone." Mounting a 
white charger which stood near- 
by, I galloped furiously through 
the waiting room to a tattoo of 
lower Jaws striking the floor. 

The train had abeady begun 
to pull out. I sped down the 
tracks behind it, catapulted my* 
self from my mount, and 
clutched frantically at Uie rail 
of the obB«rvation platform 
with my chin. Finally, I got a 
handhold and sprang gracefully 
over the rail, clicking my heels 
twice in the air and landing 
daintily on nqr face. 

The noise of my arrival 
startled an elderly gentleman 
lying under a table near the 
bar iDdthin. Seeing my plight 
(I had carelessly left my iddrt 
unbuttoned), he assisted me to 
my feet, and we weaved to 
our respective seats together. 
Onoe sai teiy nmnaed in my, 
phute ^kiki ^ back to 

enjoy the trip. 

We had no sooner left the 
station where the fountains 
were replenished wiih warm 
water and square wheds fit- 
ted under my section of the 
car, when the sounds of the 
raibroad employees going about 
their jobs filled the coaches. 

In the baggage car the at 
tendants had begun to flail the 
luggage with large hammers. 
The mail clerks scrutinized 
packages dosely, tossing those 
marked "Fragile" in a corner 
where a lesser clerk set about 
reducing them to a pulp with 
a mallet. Our porter, too, was 
engaged in activity.

[tbstte a]|d hand toirda tma tlM 

successfully resisted all my ef- 
forts, and I, begim^ng te f^el 
a bit foolish, sat doMm. 

A few minufes' had elapsed 
when that old "man against 
machine" feeling began to get 
the better of me. I began to 
formulate plans to conquer my 
foe. Whippingiput my slide rule 
I made a few raind calculations 
and determined that I didn't 
know how to use a sliderule. 

I decided to open the win- 
dow from the top by pulling 
downward with all my strength. 
I knew' that one of three things 
would result: (a) the window 
would open, (b).,the handle 
would coifte off in iHgr h«ad, 
(c) hernia. 

I picked up a copy of "Ea* 
kimo Folk Songs I Have Loved" 
which lay on the cushion next 
to me and began to leaf 

through it as I hummed strains 
of Viennese waltzes. SuddMity, 
I hurtled from my seat, shdnt- 
ed something to the effect ol 
"Banzai," and flung mysett 
the glass monster. 

I grasped the handles and 
wrenched violently downward. 
My sweaty right hand slipped 
from the handle, flew floor- 
ward, and struck the windowsill 
with sufficient force to breach 
the skin <^ four knudkles. Si- 
multaneously, a loud ¥idoa 
somewhere loosed an 
oath. It was mine. 

As I attempted to regaia 
some semMance of conq^osuN, 
an urchin, striding down tha 
aisle, finished his candy bar 
just- as he passed my seat. Ha 
stepped to the same wiadoir, 
opened it, discardedL the ymp- 
perr and went on his way, a 
smile on his grimy little face.

The football season may be

T^^player hasn't been iov^fp^

to MUlersviJie. The vaunted Both teams' defensive units 
M^auder forward wall was were 0Mtstan<ftng; the game 
iust a« tough as expected and might have ended va, a tie — 
ttw Jiount offense not too po- dxcept for Bideifte. Midway 

'l^^.-eittwpt Biddk. la the 
'firrt scoring play of thje day, 
the guys get him...janrand the 
end after which he left the 
Milleriiville secondary stand- 
ii'ii on Iheir heels. The 51-yard 
ruOvgflve Mansfield a leg^d and 
the spark to keep spirt and de- 
/.it;c tt> wlu foremost in mind 

through the third- period, the 
M^nsiicld defense forced thfe 
Marauders to punt. An excell- 
ent putit (57 yards) resulted; 
the ball bounced around a 
while, rolled a little, and was 
alxoQst dead when the Biddle 
grabbed it. The three Millers- 
ville players who surrourtded 

MilleriivilU; tied U»c gajue at | the , l)aU were so sttiiyved they j more honors, 

did'ol tenftfatt winl haMM«ied 

until Larry was five yards past 
them. The other defenders, 
too, were on their heels. In 
iact they were all jeft talking 
to themselves as the Hopper 
scooted 75 yards down the side- 
line tor the winning score of 
the game. 

The week before, against 
Ithaca Ctolliege; .iMty put on 
his best for the homctowB 
folks. After Ithaca took the 
lead at 7-0 in the second quar- 
ter, Mamsfield needed to get 
back in the baft game. So the 
kid from Canton obliged. A 
six-yard run off tackle tied the 
game. A tremendous grab M a

the Mounts all they needed for 

the upset victory.

Whether they're big or wheth-

quite a few . touchdowns for

And so Larry Biddle joins 
the select group of athletes 
who have been honored by this 
newspai)er. It is something he 
can certainly be proud of— it 
is certaihly not a hollow Honor.

, By far the most exciting of 
the aoason, the King's game 
brought out the best in the 
Mounts. Everybody ' on th^ 
squad had a terrific night. 
Good, long runs and clean, 
sharp passes were the rule. 
The squad never let up, forced 
the acti<m, and overwhelmed a 
favored King's college team. 

Then caaie the nu>st disa^w- 
ous affair of an otherwise po- 
tent season. Homecoming Day 
and a huge crowd failed to 
instill life into the Mansfield 
squad. If teams have letdawns 
once a season, then this cer- 
tainly was Mansfield's. Nothing 
went right that day. The 
Bloomsburg Huskies ran 
through Vae line like it wasn't 
even ihere. And they scored 
almost at will. The Mansfield 
"attack" ground to an almost 
complete standstilL 

Aftex the Huskie meatgrino- 
ers,- the Mountaineers needed 
time to heal the wounds. The 
flu epidemic came as a savior^ 
causing two cancellations and 
a (Buch needed respite. 

T!be two idle weeks were 
just what the Mounts needed

Mounts Open 1957-58 Glfe Season 



%ot> ^i^toah 

; I have atten4«d Mansfiield 

^^TC nearly tHvee an4 one hftlt 
years. During this time I have 
learned much about the ath- 
letic situatiMi of the school. I 

- have -seenrchiHiiuKai; soaie ^ood, 
iotae tttd Mainly, however, I 
have watched athletes grow. 
And with their growth has re- 

^^Ited a tremendous improve- 
frient in our atretic, picture. 

When I first came to Mans- 
field, the athletic situation was 
in the very iow doldrums. The 
iatct that it functioned Ht all 
was just less than a miracle. 
How long this situation Ikad 
been in existence is unknown 
but one cotdd be fair in assum- 

.^imr^thttt it WW: itt four' 
yeMs old. 

, That year (W54), the foot- 
1^^) team started the season 
it was going to lose every 
The guys on the squad' 
were complacent, lazy, and in- 
different. Most of the start- 
ing eleven were sure of their 
. jobs — whether or not they at- 
tended practice had little bear- 
ing on their starting status 
come Saturday afternoon. This 
bunch had ablHty but they 
kicked it in contempt by not 
staying in shape, disregarding 
training rules^and caring very 
little about poor showings Sat-. 
urday after Saturtfar 

But then a good thing hap- 
pened. Mr. Decker, Mr. Lloyd, 
and Dr. Wilson tooK over the 
squad/ '*These faculty members 
pot a great deal of effort into 
the team — and they firmly de- 
manded the same of the play- 
ers. The squad came alive and 
wen some ball games. But it 
Wits a ra^f "iioltew surge. The 
seeds of complacency and in- 
difference remained very far- 
tile within the group. 

Some of these boys had real 
cool deals going for them, too, 
Athletic waiterships were giv- 
en with little regard to need 
or athletic ability. Two guys 
were given full year jobs each 
year even though they never 
started in a single football 
game. Neither of these had 
enough credit ta graduate aftir 
foiur years— they came back 
for a fifth yaar ai^i were able 
Ut -work q«|% too. 
;, , And th«n canae baaketball. 
A inoKniiWffamiad' bunch of 
ball players you'll never see — 
« more codcy bunch you'll 
ptKer see either. This group 
ilDliially thoudrt they were 
IKKMi—^hey always bianaed the 
coach for losing. They, too, 
played only when they felt like 
IPiajrtng. I remember ohee they 
decided, not to mtke a trip to 
Braekport because it was "too 
far." This forced the coach to 
..go around recruiting a group 
Who iMd oe^ver even practiced 
w^th the varailar. The final' ret 
suit of this ^tdent was that 
jUansfield won the ball game 
without these not-so-hot hot- 

Baaeball was the &i«st dis- 
asterous that year*— primarily 
because we had had nine 
eaadtet, scNue twenty odd "hit- 
andUB'ee or four lleki- 
e had some beautiful 
_ op. 

The Aia^ year things were 
really in a turmoil. , One new 
coach plus the sam^' eM baH 
playm equalled -t¥^ gallons, of 
confusion. A new coaieh isiW 
most forced to go along with 
the vetema hell pUyere. Much 
to the sorrow of Mansfield, 
they knew this and to** ad- 
vantage of it. The foelball 
players forgot that football 
game»^ ast net wen on Satur- 
day aftsrnoons but are won on 
the practice field night alter 
night. The 'same ai 

vailW, "we^ll play whether we 
sheifld or hot so why kill our- 
selves.," A dismal season re- 
sulted but at last we were get- 
ting rid of some of tile seeds. 

The basketball season of 
190S-W contained too many 
'stars' and not enough unity to 
do any good. Guys who had 
ability alMsad it and guys who 
had, no ab»ity were playing 
wh« Ihey shdutd hftve been. 
It was a matter of the veteran 
players running the club and , 
atftdioore players gettint their 
two penny's wor«i also. It was 
a eeaien that produced letter- 
men like Carter produces Ht- 
Ue liver pills.- 

^asaball, another outstand- 
ing example of impotentcy, " 
produced a couple of quitters! 
It's a pretty sad state of affaiife 
a ball player at Mansfield 
tmnks be^ too good to play 
with the rest of the gang. But 
this is exactly what happened 
that year. 

r«>w, two years had pas- 
SiH; Hiere was a new thread] 
appearing in the athletic cloth4. 
of Mansfield. The new guys 
were exposed to these ideas rru u i *k n *i i « *u j.. ^ ...

which I have watched grow.

Take a fellow who i$ well

Take John Muto, a senior

vored and highly mobilized. 
They hid ^ ^t)op8, they 
iShought, to do the job. But af- 
ter their tmbble Inirst, they 
went back , to JtiMOi highly de-, 
mobilised and entir^ de^ 
moridized. The Mounts dhnM 
ed all over th«n. The score 
cmild easily have been 50-7 
the Ithaoans netted only 47 
yards rushing all day. 

When the SOodd players on 
^ Mansfield squad ran onto 
ti^ field down at MiUersville, 
tiiey came face to face with 
some 60 odd players which 
made up the Marauder squad. 
It was an awesome sight— like 
David and Goliath. And if the 
statistics of the game could be 
used as a measure, then Mil- 
lersville should probably have 
won the ball -game. But they 
didn't. The Marauder defense 
was superb; it contained Mans- 
field near|y all day; it was the 
same defiajse which held a 
powerful West Chester team 
neverless iat half a ball game. 
But if the ll^deirsvffli' defense 
was outstanding, then the 
Ifansfield defense was superior. 
The Marauders ran into a 
solid stone wall and sometimes 
the wall didn*t wait but got up 
and ran over the Marauders. 
It was a good day for Uie 
Mounts and the hardest earn- 
ed victory of the year. 

By the time Lock Haven 
brought its unbeaten, untied, 
powerhouse to Mansfield, the 
Mounts had built a great deal 
of confidence into the squad. 
Lock Haven won the ball game 
alright, but it was the toughest 
one they'd been in all season. 
Except for a slight let-up in 
the second quarter, the Mounts 
were invincible. They fought 
Lock Haven on even terms, 
they gave little and took less; 
they were a well organized 
football team dedicated to do 
a job and they did it. It was a 
tough ball game for Lock Ha- 
ven — but it was just as tough 
for the Mountaineers. 

And so the 1957 football sea- 
son goes into the record books 
simply, 3 wins, 3 defeats. At- 
titudes, emotions, confidence, 
and sheer gots cannot be re- 
corded in record books. But 
the Mounts had all of these. 
And they can be proud of it,

wood. He covered his short- 
stop position like a tent, for 
the school baseball team. And 
in his first pitching assign- 
ment, Johnny hurled every 
pitcher's dream — a no-hitter. 

After graduation, John made 

his presence felt on the local 
sports front, keeping actiire in 
both basketball and baseball. 
Then a few years later, Uncle 
Sam called and/ J^ answered 
by donning a sew uniform, 
thid; of the Air Force Mne»' 

There he spent the next four 
years, seeing duty in Texas, 
Fansnit and Colorado. John 
spent tltte greater part of his 
sendee time in Panama, three 
years to be exact. While in 
Panama, John was a member, 
bolding down a first team 
berth, of two successive Inter- 
Service championship teams at 
Albrook Air Force Base. Prov- 
ing his versatility as an ath- 
lete, John played on his com- 
pany - Softball team; he was 
later chosen to represent his 
team, as shortstop, in all-star 
competition against other var- 
ious all-star aggregations in 
that Central American coun- 
try. In his first attempt at 
golf, Johnny went out and won 
a gold cup. He was also a 
member of the base dre de- 

Upon completing his military 
obligation, John enrolled at 
Mansfield at mid-semester in 
January, ld54. He decided to 
forsake athletics and devote 
his time to studies; although, 
he did weaken a bit ^nd play 
one year of baseball, hia sopho- 
more year. 

Johnny accepted, this sea- 
son, the position as chief

quintet. The membws of the 
team are in a fortunate posi- 
tion indeed, for they will re- 
ceive the utmost in baAetball

also offers a basic foundation
